    We recently put our chicks outside. We are now seeing a groundhog hanging around their pen. Should we worry??

    Groundhogs are actually curious, and will want to take advantage of any free meals it can. Won't hurt the chicks.

    The chickens might give him a good pecking if he gets to close to their food, I know that happens to my wife's sheltie when he gets to close to my chickens' food.
