Our girls gave us a pretty big scare last night. My husband and I were out for the day and we had let them free-range in the yard. In all other instances before, the girls stay in a pack, wander about in the shrubbary, and then go back into the coop for bed. Really these girls are perfectly behaved animals. So anyways, we come home last night and there are two chickens missing from the coop. We started running about madly with flashlights in the yard looking for them but they were nowhere to be found. To heighten our suspicion, there was a large white cat that we had never seen before sitting in our yard near the coop. We feared the worst, until on a whim I went into the garage. THERE WERE OUR TWO MISSING CHICKENS, PERCHED ON TOP MY HUSBANDS WEED WACKER. Moral: keep the garage door closed. Silly chickens.
