* raccoon tracks

Posted on January 13th, 2011 by maitreya. Filed under Chickens.

Oh no, the raccoons have found us!  Don’t worry, the chickens are alive and well.  This morning when I went to let them out of the coop, I found these tracks in the snow leading from the sidewalk right up to the fence and then back to the sidewalk.  I guess we’re on the raccoon’s patrol route.  No tracks inside the fence, though.


I consulted my Storey’s Guide for confirmation.  Here’s a nice page that has a good picture.


The tracks leading back to the sidewalk are clearer to see the big back feet, but they were also meltier.
