    Yeah it was insane i watched them land from inside the house. Opens the door and they just flew slowly to a tree so he went out there. I dont want them stealing my hens food much less exposing my hens to diseases. I refuse to watch the birds however the frogs just makes me giggle and smack my for-head since it so stupid. However i am sure my daughter would be freaking out she is terrified of frogs.

    I have the same problem with sparrows...they even get in the spouts of my bucket feeders, and when I throw scratch down they all swoop down...I guess it's something I have to live with.
