    Today I was just sitting out in the balmy sunshine being entertained by my chickens. All of a sudden all five of them froze in their tracks and stayed that way for several minutes. They did not move a feather until I rose from my seat and then they ran underneath an outbuilding with the rooster registering loud frantic squarks. What on earth could have terrified them so?

    They saw something that set them off.
