    I wish we could embed the video in our posts.


    I hope you enjoy this short video. My husband caught a squirrel in the act of eating out of the chicken feeder - WITH THE CHICKENS IN THERE TOO!

    I knew that the squirrel was eating their food but I didn't think they were actually letting him! They don't seem to mind the visitor at all. Only kerfuffle was when the squirrel tried to get out of the coop and ran around in there (the door was actually free from obstruction; he just was startled into confusion).

    Yes, they seem to be looking, but I don't understand why they didn't chase that guy out of there?

    I Wonder if anyone else has had a similar situation - squirrels and chickens hanging out together!

    Oooh that was a black squirrel! Those are rare around here [​IMG]
    I would agree that Mr. Squirrel had a major indignant!

    Quote:Ditto! That is one dark squirrel. I don't think he was expecting you to come around the corner with that camera. He was like, "What da..." Then, freaked out. [​IMG]
