almost any morning that I drive to Traverse City, I pass this man walking on the side of the road out of Kingsley. I've seen him as long as I've lived here - he wears hunting orange and is always wearing earphones. I'm sure he lives nearby, and must walk each morning to town and home or something
Some students from Kingsley High School witnessed a fox kill a Mother cottontail rabbit, leaving three orphaned babies. They managed to catch two of them, and left them at my farm for care. They are doing pretty well - I made them a nest in the shower stall of my downstairs bathroom. They've been here for 24 hours and I am managing to feed them milk with an eye dropper. I estimate their age to be appx 3 weeks - I will do my best to help them make it to young adulthood! They are the cutest little creature you've ever seen
A fox took a chicken while they were free ranging last week, so I haven'y been letting them out unless I am outside to supervise. There was always a fox in the woods, and there will always be a fox in the woods. This morning the fox was camped out right beside the hen yard fence. I used the best protection I have against him - Max and Cozy, who ran down and chased him off. I can't blame him for being a fox, but I will make it as hard as possible for him to find another meal at my farm.
