they run BACK to their coop.. all big eyed and looking like somethings going to eat them. Hmmm... okay.... first time in days they've been out due to rain. I hear bluejays and other birds squawking about, not really paying much attention though as they're behind me.... The pen door is open to the coop area... the girls are still frozen..and I'm across the yard calling them holding cucumbers in my hand. Nothing..still frozen; but the bluejays are getting louder and now the squirrels are joining in. Okay so I look up.. no hawks..no eagles. C'mon girls...come onnnnn..look nice cuke for you..and I waggle it about. Nada... wont budge. Then I hear it something behind me... flapping.. and it sounds LARGE. I turn around....and there...is a flipping buzzard!! I stood up so fast you'd of thought the thing landed on me! The bluejays were attacking it and it was just moseying about..slowly...towards me.... I went inside to get my camera and by the time I came back out.. I guess Mr. Buzzard was bluejay pecked enough because he took flight to the neighbors roof top and then flew off again. Couldnt get a pic of him. I was creeped out though - and the girls finally came out of their pen for goodies. Next time.. I'll pay attention to that "deer in the headlight" look they're giving me!
