..was filling up the birdfeeder when I noticed a mouse noticing me on a nearby rock. When I fill up the songbird feeder with black sunflower seeds the older chickens come running..and Ma(the hen) noticed the mouse when she did. She launched into it and threw it, chased it through the brush then pounced on it again and pecked it to death. Impressive.
The new chicks like the tarp over the tablesaw ‘playground’..it’s amazing how fast they grow. Seeing Ma work over that mouse helps me understood how she had mortally wounded 2 of the chicks a month ago in our botched adoptation attempt.
A* did not believe me about the mouse..in her own defense it might have something to do with me making up outlandish stories constantly. This sighting was much different than last week when I saw a sparrow carrying a coconut.
