Hubby said a magpie LEFT the chicken house as he approached last night - walked down the hen's ramp and flew away. Egg production was down again, I blamed it on the weather. I JUST sold my large, protective Java roosters. ARGH It's a horse shed converted to hen house, with dirt floor and large outdoor runs. Due to the configuration, I haven't put a net over the top (the human door opens into the run.) HAd no idea they could be that bold. Guess I'll have to put up netting?
