    Unfortunately it happens so quickly that I've been unable to capture pictures or video but I have this 6 month old buff orpington RI Red cross that has this thing about squirrels. If one is on the ground, she'll take off across the yard and chase it up a tree. If the squirrel chooses to run around on the ground, Sunny (my chicken) is right behind him - wings out for balance. I'm gonna hurt myself laughing at her.

    If you could get that on video you could probably get on America's funniest home videos. I would like to see it.[​IMG]

    Some of my girls chase my daughter's mini Aussie- she's not much taller than they are!
