January brought with it a new foe. An Owl.
This is him perched ever so sweetly on my backyard neighbors deck. They are just inside and got to witness him up close through the glass for several hours.
What I got to do for several hours? Clean up his mess. The mess he made with MY chicken!
Not so cute now are ya Mr. Owl.
We spent all the daylight hours and into the dark putting up netting over the coop. It looks like a hot mess but we’ll wait until summer when the ground has thawed to put up something more permanent. Luckily he only got one chicken.
