    Well I came home from work and went down to check on my flock like I usually do.I brought them a treat of watermelon and they were really enjoying that.Oh boy! All of a sudden i saw something out of the corner of my eye and I looked and I thought it was my welsummer chick in the feed pan. Then I looked again because it looked kind of strange for a chicken and lo and behold it was a chipmunk head down in the feed pan stuffing its cheeks with the feed. Well i did not know whether to go get my BB gun or laugh it was so cute .[​IMG]

    I have a chipmunk that likes to "share" the girls food. The girls ignore him so I do too. He is cute as a button! I have left food for the chippie (Sunflower seeds) to encourage him to leave the feed alone! Only works for as long as there are seeds!!!![​IMG]
