    Some friends asked if they could sit on the game trail that goes through the lower part of my land to still hunt. I told them sure but they made the mistake of cutting through our lawn to get there. Looked out to see 35 chickens trailing them down the hill--bet that didn't enhance their hunting experience. [​IMG] Next time they'd better take a different route.

    Maybe your chickens believed that it was their duty to be on hand for the cleanup detail [​IMG] Mine did that to my dh when he was getting rid of the carcass from the deer he had gotten. He was a bit nervous seeing them following him around. I told him not to trip on something, fall and go unconcious [​IMG]

    My hubby butchered a deer in our side yard. By noon there was nothing left of the blood and guts he left behind. our chickens had cleaned the whole place up. Little vultures!
