    I came outside yesterday to find my chickens running around like crazy. Scared. Some trying to fly out of their run etc.

    Culprit was... a butterfly.

    Yep that's right. A fairly large butterfly was flying over head and totally freaked them all out.

    Hey, give your chickens credit. That butterfly could have been one of those Killer African Poultry-Eating Butterflies.

    OMG, mine have done that too! Mr. Bojangles(my young rooster) growls and sends out the alarm call(much like a soldier yelling "INCOMING!!") over the GOOFIEST things. He never fails to make me laugh. I love how everyone in the flock ducks their head when he does that, lol.

    My RIR saw a humming bird the other day & it was obvious what was going through her head as she chased it around the yard: "That's gotta be the biggest moth EVER!"

    Quote:That's so funny. When we got the rabbit we have now I instantly thought of Monty Python. Sometimes I think our bunny is that same kind of "special" rabbit. She's not happy unless she's got something to bully. She always has some sort of toy in her cage to keep her occupied. She's the craziest rabbit I've ever had. Looks can be deceiving.
