I went outside the other night and this is what I saw.
I was just stretching, Mama.
I'm not doing anything wrong. See, I'm leaving.
Oh, wait. What's that I smell?
Really, though, I've let the chickens out of their pen a few times. The cats have not bothered them, although they've been very interested in them. Of course, I have not just abandoned the chickens to the cats. The chickens not quite full grown, although they're close. The cats, on the other hand, are fabulous hunters and even attempt to hunt the deer at times. While the cats stalk the deer, the deer just ignore them. I think that the chickens will give them a run for their money. We'll see, when the time comes.
