This isn't really chicken predator related, but I thought that I would share. Last night I walked onto my front porch to fill the cat food bowls that reside in chicken-proof boxes. I had just walked past my cat Stella in the kitchen and Little Cat was asleep in the living room. Lo and behold, there is crunching coming from inside the cat box on the porch. I knew that it wasn't our outdoor cat, because he is so big that he only sticks his head and hands in when he eats and leaves a big puffy tail and butt hanging out of the box. And who is the source of the crunch and munch? This little guy... I grabbed a broom and tried to shoo him out of the box with no success. DH came out and was more successful with the broom and the little guy fled the porch.
