fox in the hen house

ok it wasn't in the hen house but yesterday a scraggly old fox ran through the yard. he raised quite the hub bub with the girls!! luckily i caught a glimpse of him out of the corner of my eye and i went to investigate. there he/she was between me and the coop. i yelled for josh (apparently he didn't hear me because he never came) then i start yelling at the fox along with all the hens that happened to be right there. darn thing ran off into the woods, but it makes me nervous to think it's around. i check on the girls alot more often! makes me wonder if the chicken tractors are safe ?!?

update on the chicken tractor

well it seems it may be a slight challenge to get the chickens in the tractor. one went in and found she couldn't get out. she made quite the fuss and although the others would stand around the tractor watching her, they would not go in. i know that i could grab them up at night while they roost, but that mean old boogie woogie (the rooster) kinda scares me.......

my thought for the day

In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up. ~Martin Niemoller
