I can’t get enough of this view… We also have chickens now…they aren’t terribly clever, and they shriek at me whenever I open the back door, but they are beginning to lay yummy eggs, so I can’t complain.
I have two large rubbermaid containers to hold my bird seed. I leave one of them on my porch because I’m too lazy to walk it back to the barn and put it away.
Twice I have found the lid opened and chewed. Oh, I think to myself, I must have left it open. Huh.
Yesterday I found a chipmunk inside. Well, I had no idea how to get him out, and there was absolutely no way I would pick up the container and shake it (because what if he climbed out and attacked my face?) so I yelled a lot and tried to look menacing. He inhaled 5 more sunflower seeds and then took his time leaving. I shook the container to see how much he had eaten.
And there was something fuzzy inside.
So I calmly put it down on the ground, in the sun, walked back inside the house and waited for hubby to come home the next day and deal with it.
We’ve only been here a few months, but we’ve found some very odd things. And some magical things.
Yes, that’s a turkey foot. All by itself. Just sitting on the ground. Two days ago we had turkeys. About 14 of them, just feeding off the ground. And then we went up on Zero Point Mom (a hill) and found this. No feathers, no guts.
