    Everytime I let my girls out in the morning, it's like a bird sanctuary in my backyard! I keep their food in their secure run, so I know they aren't after that. But robins, cardinals, sparrows, blue jays, crows....they all flock to the trees and cause a huge ruckus! The chickens only get bothered if one comes close and starts making noise. Just wondering if anyone else has the same problem (not really an issue, just kind of strange).

    I have crows, doves, pigeons and sparrows. Rats of the sky.

    I only have sparrows and the chickens are taking their revenge on them. I know of three that they have killed and eaten.
