Hens on alert!

This morning the hens were all clucking loudly, standing on the perch, standing at attention and staring at the woods.   Hmmmmmm…. something was out there.  We didn’t see it but they did.

So…. I put the wildlife camera on the wire wall of their fortress.  They are not allowed to free-range because of the vast number of predators we have around here.

I’ll leave it there for a few days, then I’ll see the back yard and the woods from their point of view.   Was it a weasel, racoon, coyote, bobcat, cougar, bear or just the neighbors dog again?
