    But according to my flock the large white sqare thing is a chicken eating monster.

    I had just added another shade tarp to the coop and had the group in 'jail'.

    I put a cardboard box in the yard for them to investigate but they are rather alarmed to see this thing in their yard

    They race past me and stay behind me to make sure the box does not attack them

    They eventually gain courage to get a closer look

    They try a sneak attack behind the blocks

    Cardboard Chicken seeks comfort in my lap

    Finally Morse Code can't resist a vertical surface and moves in

    Soon, her pecking has others moving in

    Jennifer scootches across the top of the box

    Soon the box succumbs to all the beaks

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Stan The Man and Little Joe ain't the bravest cockerels! Little Sister keeps them in check so they hang back.

    I didn't see the Ghost Chickens but found them later on the memory card.
