Happy Hunting!

Chickens are carnivorous, believe it or not. The other day I watched out back as "Red" chased "Uno" around the yard. "What's going on?", I wondered. I stepped out back and continued to watch. Red would chase Uno. Uno would outpace her, stop, and then Red would chase Uno again. Our # 1 mouser since the fall has been Scooter, our Maine Coon kitty. However, now we've got a team. "The girls" appear to be very good at catching mice who like to frequent our two composts. Uno caught a mouse the other day and Red was obviously quite envious of her prize.
