    I went out a few minutes ago and heard crows making a heck of a ruckus in the woods off the NE corner of my land. Looked around and saw a big redtail was the object of their scorn. Made a quick check of the chickens who had been running all over when I came in an hour ago--most were inside the coop but a dozen or so were with my 5-month old rooster--he had them all tucked in under the cover of the blueberry patch. He is the only rooster I got from a half dozen straight-run EE's from McM that hatched May 29th. Looks like he's gonna be a good one. By the time I got down to the area where the hawk was trying to get away from the crows, they'd sent him packing. Birds may spend tomorrow inside.
