I went outside a little while ago to take my 5 y/o to her bus (afternoon kindergarted) and I saw this strange guy in the woods staring at my chickens. He was talking on his cell phone. Our chicken coop is kind of on the property line, and in the back is all woods. We only have 1 neighbor and it wasn't him. There was no cars around so I assume he came up through the woods. I noticed the hens were all standing erect and all looking in the same direction - at the guy. At first i didn't see him but as I got closer he started walking towards the woods. My girls were fine so I also went around to the other side where we keep the ducklings and they were also fine. I couldn't see the guy or where he went but I could still here him on the phone, so I'm not sure who he was, why he was "hiding" or what he planned to do, but how common is it for someone to steal chickens? I keep looking out the window and called my husband. Hubby told me to call the cops but I have no idea where he went to now and I don't want to seem overly paranoid, but I can't for the live of me figure out why he was watching the chickens and walked away when I went there....... Any ideas? Should I be worried about waking up tomorrow to missing hens?
