A fox (well, we're pretty sure it's a fox) has been attacking my poor chickens - he has bitten two of the meat bird hens and they have had to be put down. A friend has set a trap....it's a wee bit stressful. Poor chickens....
(He's actually not IN the henhouse, he can't get in there....but he's hanging out down close to the barn.)
At the same time I found the poor chicken, Ginger was looking like a MAJOR puffball, with all her hair standing on end. She had been down at the barn too.....something (as in a fox?) tried to get her. Thank goodness she wasn't hurt worse. I'll get some pics up of her poor lil face soon.
She wasn't hurt badly, but I'm thinking by the way she was clinging on to me, she had the you-know-what scared out of her....
So she is confined to the house....where she is quickly driving da Wolf and me totally crazy! She's bouncing off walls and flying up and down the stairs....and she darn well insists on laying right in the middle of da Wolf's blanket, so there is no room for him. He won't force her to move, as he realizes that she truly does rule this home!
Because there is a trap set at the barn, da Wolf is no longer allowed out in the yard, for fear he will set off the trap and hurt his nose. So, instead of being in the yard, where he always is....he is now allowed out on the other side of the house, where he is Never Allowed on his own. (I mean the road side) This has resulted in massive confusion for da Wolf, who spends much of his time pacing around. Worse, he Knows there's something he wants to get his teeth into down at the barn and he's not allowed to go do his job!
Ginger keeps getting on my kitchen countertops, and I cannot stand that! I'm walking around with a water squirt bottle to spray at her when I catch her. (Anybody have hints for me as to what I can do to get her to stop?)
I need a couple cups of tea or a couple glasses of beer!
