    Well, my yard is now safe from squirrels and robins. [​IMG]

    I would have killed for a video of yesterday. A squirrel happened to come into the yard, and Fussy thought "This is MY yard, how DARE you???"...so....at 10 weeks, just like a teenager, we are ten foot tall and invincible, ya know.

    So, She chased the squirrel up the tree, but the squirrel wasnt TOO frightened, so only went about 4 foot up the tree. There was the squirrel, upside down, looking over Fussy, and Fussy was going around and around the tree, and so was the squirrel, only like I said about 4 foot up. At one point, the I had a full on view of the squirrel, while a half shot of Fussy trying to FIND the dadblasted thing peering round the tree. I was laughing so hard...then the squirrel decided to make a break for it...jumped down and ran and Fussy chased her full break neck speed with wings out....

    The squirrel finally got to another tree out of the yard an Fussy was happy. But right after THAT, a couple came by walking their dog on a leash...a fairly LARGE dog...and that darned chicken was so full of herself, she started to chase the DOG!!! I had to really holler at her, crazy chicken!
    They sure crack me up....
