    Somehow, 6 little mice found there way into my feed bin. But only 5 escaped. All the other hens were jealous as Emma paraded around shaking it like a predator would. Emma is our sweetest chicken.

    The frogs and salamanders here don't stand a chance against my chickens .... (mice take a pretty big hit too)

    (We won't even mention crickets, grasshoppers, and dragonflies)
