Just feeding the baby in her high chair and heard the song birds going nuts. Look out the window to see a Red Tailed Hawk swoop low over the wooded area the chicken coop is in. Song birds mobbing it like crazy. Ran outside to check the chickens and all I see is the turkey keepng watch of the sky and no chickens. They were all under the coop. Did a head count and all the chickens were there. Thank goodness. My 6 year old was right behind me helping me check them too. He said he was scared that we were gonna find a dead chicken. This will be the second time the song birds have helped the chickens out. The first time they mobbed a racoon near the coop and sent it packing out to the field. That night it was back but in the trap. I guess it is a good thing we have a lot of birds nesting out back in our wooded, brushy area.
