    It appears they have a penchant for little blueberry muffins?

    the bakery goodies are for the piglets. The birds like to go wreck havoc with them, then sit amongst them.
    I heard a scuffle this morning while in the barn, saw the little chick come running in frantic so I ran out. 20 feet away, this mamma hen was after a fox. She charged the fox, he didn't know what to do and ran away. I'm so impressed with her protective skills. She was making a funny noise and was very alert a minute before and I wondered why she was doing that. Now, I know, she knew the fox about and charged it.
