    I've read about this before but never really pictured my girls doing this. Until they actually did.
    I was out there trying to take a picture of the two cockerels I need to find homes for when they started making sounds I'd never heard before. It was kinda creepy and they were all huddled together near the fence. Then all of a sudden one of them runs off with a mouse. Then they played keep away for 20 minutes before actually eating it.

    I really like having chickens.

    My chickens are better mice hunters than my cat.
