So I have a story. It's not a serious story, but it's amusing, and I thought my fellow chicken keepers could appreciate it. Pecans are dropping here in Kansas, and their presence has attracted a bunch of critters to our yard. Squirrels, of course, but also... crows. Now, I was none too pleased about these feathered interlopers cutting in on my nut harvest, so I spent several days trying in vain to discourage them from hanging out in our pecan trees. Then one day, my mother reported that while the chickens were out free ranging, a hawk came callin'. Before she could rush to their rescue, the hawk was chased off by... The Crows! I have gone from yelling "Hey you crows! Stop eating my pecans!" to "Hey, take all you want!"
