A week or so ago I walked into my chicken coop to make sure everything was buttoned up at night. The small side door had been left open and when I shut it I heard a scraping noise. The chickens were quiet. I looked in the "annex" and there was a little baby owl (4-5 inches tall) hanging on by the window. He landed on the roost and then all heck broke loose with the chickens. I never thought I'd have an owl in my coop especially when the only access was through a 12" opening at the bottom of a wall.
