    I think those little squirrels with racing stripes are just too cute!! They won't bother your chickens but if they are small like we have in some parts of NC, your chickens might eat them like they would a mouse! They sure will get into your feed too unless you have it in metal containers, otherwise they shouldn't be harmful [​IMG]

    I love chipmunks, they are cute and harmless. It's the squirrels I can't stand...they are destructive and terrible!
