Last night at 3:30am I woke up to sounds in the yard. I ran out in my all-together to chase these four big raccoons off. I was throwing sticks and charging around the yard, ass to the breeze. Then I saw that one of the quail was out of the coop. I scooped it up and took it back to the cage. The raccoons had ripped open the chicken wire on one corner of the coop. They got one quail- see exhibits A (feathers on the coop where the raccoons got in) and B (bit of said quail found on the grass this morning). Now there are five.
