I'm guessing he's plenty hungry if he's coming in to eat chicken feed!
He gets right in the middle of the chicks, hunting on the ground! I think he thinks he' s a chick!
He has beem assaulted twice already. THe chickens are huntng him. To them I bet he looks like something to eat!
I caught him in a towel, couldn't find him, so I raised corner of towel to look, and he escaped. We did find a little cage, so lets hope he likes the cage as much as he likes the chicks.
I have to go to Petsmartt tonight, so I will get some goodies for finches, expensive dog food, and full size chicken feeder so the quit wasting so much.
We would be loaded if not for animals. Oh well, this is my cup of tea!
