    A freakin' cow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It's rainy and miserable here, so when I let the chickens out this AM I just left the big door open. We have a electric fence around the chicken coop & yard to deter any cows that get too curious. I didn't know that the plug to the electric fence had come unplugged, making the fence useless.
    I go out to check on the chickens and found four cows nosing around in the chicken yard and one standing with most of it's body inside the coop, eating the chicken litter! [​IMG]
    For some reason, I have an intense craving for a ribeye right about now. [​IMG]

    When the cow starts clucking and lays an egg, definitely let us know. [​IMG]

    Haha! This reminds me of the time I went out to feed and found my daughters pony in the coop!
    She was probably easier to rangle than a cow though!
