A new threat to the chickens: raccoons. We’ve been getting relaxed about shutting the chicken hatch at night, and that was a bad idea. Came home one night and there were three little pairs of beady eyes, one raccoon just trundling out of the henhouse; last night HW busted one in the henhouse again. Clearly that’s who upset the food trough the other day. Luckily they seem to prefer chicken food to chicken for food at this point.
