Last night, I was watching a movie when I glanced over at the security camera that covers my coop. The chickens were frozen still and all were looking in the same direction. I went outside to check it out thinking it might be a snake or a coyote outside the fence. As I was checking the yard with my maglite, I heard a thump on the wood box in the corner. I yelled "bobcat"! To my surprise, a young mountain lion jumped down right in front of me. I flashed him with my light and he leaped right over the fence. We had had a bobcat slay half our flock two years earlier and had rebuilt the coop like a fortress. Lucky chickens.
