Recently, I had the brilliant idea to buy a used baby monitor on eBay so I could hear if anything was attacking my hens in the coop. Up 'til today, all I'd been using it for was eavesdropping on all of their clucks and coos and carrying-ons when they were laying and dust-bathing indoors.

Well, at 5am this morning, I heard a terrible racket.

Mind you, the receiver is in the living room at the far end of the house. I jumped out of bed, threw on my barn shoes, and sprinted to the coop expecting to see carnage.

When I got to the coop, all of the hens were on the roosts and looked at me like, "what??".

I have no idea what set them and the rooster off. Stumpy was looking out the window, so maybe he saw something he didn't like and that's what started it all.

I was just very relieved that the predator was non-existent.

Doggone baby monitor, anyway.

My kitties set mine off sometimes while they are hunting for verman around the roost areas I have a monitor but use it in the daytime as my dogs work the night shift and take care of things while i sleep.
