Hmm...a few days slip by and that seems an eternity. While I was not happy for the piece of metal the size of a small butterknife piercing my tire...I did get the situation resolved and I am home today where much needs to be done and I can go at my own pace.
Yesterday morning and last night I was uneasily aware that my big dog was not coming around for dinner...I thought I heard his tags under the house. Sure enough this morning I saw where one of the doors under the house had come open and he was under the back porch. I took a door off and let him out. He was happy to get breakfast.
The previous evening when I arrived home from wrestling with the tire and spare and gridlock traffic I checked the guinea nest...all the eggs were broken and empty except two...again it was too dark to go inspecting. This morning I spotted my guinea family. When my guinea girl stood up a troupe of striped chicks scattered from under her feathers like an antebellum petticoat...very impressive.
Aside from all that I am restoring order from the insidious increase of rats. Not to offend the rat owning public...they are nice creatures as are field mice...and in the field I have no quibble with them. I just don't care for the damage they can do to a dwelling so I use rat zappers which are quick and clean to dispense of them. This just has to be monitored diligently. When I injured my knee I could not check the traps. At present I have trapped 34 since Sunday. I do research to understand the life cycle of the rat. It is really quite interesting and like most entities in nature they have an order and hierarchy.
Anyway...just a quick check in and back to the situation at hand.

    Here are a few articles that might help...I like the first one best and has links to others that might be helpful...I knew about marigolds to keep snakes away, but didn't know about rodents. Let alone sprinkling cayenne..but not sure about the lambs and other creatures.
