Here's just a fun thread for everyone to post What was the weirdest thing you found in your chicken pen. Mine is that I found a baby thrush which couldn't quite fly in my chicken pen. it must have fallen in through the wire mesh of the top of my run, but it was going berserk. I managed to pick it up and put it under a convenient hedge. I have had adult small birds fly in and out of my pen but a bird has never got stuck....

What's your story?????????

I found a one foot black snake on the ceiling of the coop. When I scream ( I'm really scared of snakes) the snake just falls of and slithered in my direction. So my chickens Tinker and Bell (I am like their mom since I hatched them) ambush them like a gang and eat it. Is that normal?

I was startled by what came out of the chickens after I fed them red cabbage. Their poop looked like they ate something toxic. While technically not in the pen, this summer I found a dead weasel at the pen door and our cat sitting next to it. How to best dispose of a dead weasel? Buried in a rodent tunnel in the chicken pen. No sign of rodents in the pen for months.
