So, yesterday I noticed a crow watching the chickens. I figured they were safe as I don't think a crow will go after a chicken. Today, he's hopping all around foraging with them. If I go out, he flies off, but he comes right back. I locked them up for part of the day and he sat (on the ground) next to their run and just squawked. I've tried to get a picture but he flies off. SO odd!
A crow has befriended my chickens
Nope, he oddly won't even go in the run though there's food and water. He has taken some water from the outside the run dish. I ended up emptying to prevent germs. He's pretty huge, but seems harmless.
Yes!...They will indeed do that. I even had a crow that walked into the chicken house at night to roost with them. Though sometimes it would roost on the roof rather than inside. I always welcome crows as they will chase hawks off and attempt to warn the chickens of any ground predators. The crows are grateful for any eggs that I leave out for them to take and I've never had a problem with them stealing any.
