To Boldly Go Where No PEE Has Gone Before . . .

Greetings from the North Woods!

It is a balmy 43 degrees and the natives are out buying seed starting kits in force. We have to remain optimistic when there is still 3 feet of snow on the ground.

A nod to the late, great Leonard Nimoy in the title of today’s blog post. NO i am not a trekky, but he was a cultural icon that even I can’t ignore. I am sure that still leaves you scratching your head as to what the heck I am writing about today. Well, here goes. . .

So, it has come to my attention through various means not the least of which is our friend The Chicken Chick that there is a big group of people who have not yet been educated regarding the benefits of predator pee. While it is hard for me as a long time purveyor of animal urine to believe that anyone could be ignorant in this area, I guess there is more work to be done! Accordingly, we have dubbed 2015 the “Year of the Chicken” at predatorpee.com. Now, while it sounds like something right out of the Chinese calendar, it is really just a commitment on our part to let every poultry enthusiast and owner of backyard chickens, ducks etc. that there is a way to keep their precious layers, show birds, and pet hens safe from predation. There are several vile vermin that like to snack on eggs or the poultry that lay them. Foxes, racoons, coyotes, rats, mice, possum, weasels make up a motley crew of animals that pose a threat to to any backyard flock.

PredatorPee-CoopGuard-Well, what is to be done, you ask? If you know anything about our products, you know that people have been using them for years to keep hungry animals away from garden patches, shrubbery, pets, livestock, etc. It is only logical that this effective tool be carried over in to the ever burgeoning world of backyard chickens. Cities and towns all over the country are passing ordinances allowing people to keep hens in response to the increasing interest in growing and raising one’s own food. So it is time to take our pee where it has not gone before and explore all of the ways that wolfpee, coyotepee, bobcatpee, etc. can help protect innocent poultry and let their intrepid owners sleep a little better at night.

Because chickens have a weak sense of smell, PredatorPee does affect them at all – but the pests will stay away! T Here is a general guide to help you choose the right Pee for the most common pests:
For Mice: BobcatPee,
For Racoons, possum & rats: CoyotePee,
For Foxes, weasels and coyotes: WolfPee

As a way to jumpstart this effort, we are reaching out to this group with an advertisement in the upcoming issue of Backyard Poultry Magazine. Look for it later this month. We are offering a special package for Backyard Poultry readers. Also, we are reaching out to poultry bloggers and using social media to create awareness. If you read this, make sure to share!

If you have read my blog, you know that I keep chickens and know how devastating it can be to lose any of them to a predator. PredatorPee can make it so that doesn’t happen again. Predator Urine stops the problem. They fear a predator is nearby and they leave. It is as simple as that. Help us get the word out!

Hope the sun is shining where you are.

Which Came First – The Chicks or The Eggs?

Greetings from the North Woods where we seem to be stuck in Sprinter – no snow but not quite warm enough yet. This post, however, is about all things Spring.

Easter time at Winterberry Farm featured the annual egg hunt in the woods. As you can see from the photos, there was still some snow on the ground at the edge of the field. Every year, I have the job of hiding the plastic, treat-filled eggs, and every year I seem to forget exactly how many my wife gave me to hide. Oh well, the forest creatures find them eventually and enjoy a little sugar fix. This year, my 2nd oldest granddaughter was the champion egg hunter. egghuntgroup huntingeggseggstashMoving forward a bit, 8 chicks arrived last week. Hopefully, in about a months time, they will be ready to join Brown Betty and the Amish Hen in the chicken coop. With 10 layers, I think the egg production should be enough to feed us and the growing grandkids.

I just recently moved the chicken coop closer to my wife’s garden beds, and within a week I saw a fox checking out my hens. Well, that is just not acceptable for the PeeMan! If you have chickens, you know how valuable they are.  One of the uses of our 100% Prechicksday1datorpee is to keep predators away from your precious hens. 100% WolfPee will keep the foxes away from Brown Betty, the new chicks, and your hens as well. Don’t just take my word for it – backyard chicken officianado The Chicken-Chick also recommends our product for hen protection.

chicksday5I hope your hens are safe and Spring is in full bloom wherever you are.

How to Protect Chickens in Vermont? PeeMan Q&A

Hello Again! Here are some the questions I have been getting in email lately.

Q. I live in a rural area in Vermont and I have a few chickens. I have seen coyotes, bears, raccoons, skunks, weasels, neighborhood dogs and a fisher. What would you recommend to protect the chickens from all of these? (I dohave electric poultry netting, but coyotes could jump over and weasels can go through). I’m concerned about attracting one predator while trying to deter another. For instance, if I use coyote urine to keep away the weasels, will it attract coyotes?

A. WolfPee would be my choice for this wide variety of predators. 

Q. I just ordered some fox pee to inhibit squirrels from chewing wires and trying to nest in my car engine compartment. How do I store the pee and for how long can I store it to use? Thank you.

A. Room temp is fine, should be good for at least 2 years.

Q. Is there anything I can use to deter a mountain lion? There was one in the woods out back of my house and today we discovered some scat right outside our dog pen which is attached to the house. We have 3 small pomeranians that go out a few times a day. We just moved here in the catskills, ny.

Thank you for any info you can give me

A. WolfPee should be the best option for you. 

As you can see, my inbox is always full of interesting questions. As you can also see, I don’t tend to send flowery responses. KISS – keep it simple stupid – is a motto I like to follow. Plus, I’d rather be outside than in front of the computer. But, as long as duty calls, the PeeMan will continue to provide answers for all those urgent PeeMails. Have a good one!

 

Protect Your Backyard Chickens with PredatorPee

The PeeMan's very own Brown Betty

The PeeMan’s very own Brown Betty

Well, isn’t she a beauty? She lays a mean egg, too. This whole backyard chicken thing is a relatively new experiment for the PeeMan. But, a whole host of critters, including foxescoyotesraccoonshawks, and even dogs have been causing problems around chicken coops for decades.  Whether it is in your back yard or a full farming operation, the need for an all-natural repellent to protect your chickens and their precious eggs has never been greater.  As many of you sadly know from first-hand experience, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, hawks, and yes, even dogs eat chickens and ruin your prospects for eggs, whether you plan to eat ’em, sell ’em, or hatch ’em.

Wolf urine is an effective fox and coyote deterrent that repels foxes and coyotes from your chicken coop by creating the illusion that a wolf is nearby. Wolf Urine or Coyote urine will take care of raccoons, our PeeCoy Combo is great for birds, and Bear Urin or Skunk’Umcan keep the dogs away.  Now you can protect your chickens and their eggs with Wolf Pee, Coyote Pee, Bear Pee, and Skunk’Um from PredatorPee.com, the best and most reliable source for predator urines since 1986.

Create a “pee-rimeter” around your chicken coop by using WolfPee liquid with ScentTags, 33 Day Dispensers or ScentWraps.  This will keep fox and coyote away from your chicken coop for good.  This is not a chemical repellent, nor are there any additives whatsoever.  Wolf Urine is completely natural, organic, and 100% real urine!  The one thing that a fox or a coyote fears is a wolf, and wolf urine sends a clear message that a wolf is nearby.  Except no substitute.

Well, that is all for now. The sun shone briefly here for a while today and the temperatures actually rose above 50! Brown Betty was enjoying the sun, too!  I’ve got some pictures of the Airstream project, and I will post them soon. The PeeMan
