    I didn't see it when i went out to release the chickens this morning, but the dogs had killed a vole and left it intact on the sidewalk.

    No wonder they were all lined up looking out of the coop, transfixed......and here I thought they were looking at me.

    You should have seen and heard the stampede across the 10 feet between the coop and the carcass!

    I didn't see who finally got to eat it, but each of them had brief possession of it at least once in their 5-minute race around the yard.
