Would Be Thief In The Night!

On Thursday night, the Wonderful Neighbor Man called my husband. He said they could see flashlights out by our movable chicken pens. Michael got out the spotlight and shined it out there. We did not see anything, so he got in the car and went out there to shine the brights all around the area. He did not see anything, so he came back in. We went out Friday in the early evening to catch the chickens and put them in pens for butchering. When we got up in the field we noticed that there were about 4 or 5 chickens outside the pen. We got out and went over to figure out how they got out. There was a big hole in one end of the pen. It was a man made hole we think. It looks like the edges were rolled under. If this hole had been there for any length of time, we would have had chickens out before that night. We are pretty sure that the flashlight person was responsible. Michael must have scared him off. There were no dead chickens nor were there any missing. Now, we are wondering about our turkeys. We will have to ask the Lord to watch over them for us.

Maybe we should be praying for some "attack turkeys" to rise up! You really do have wonderful neighbors. Have a blessed week sweet Marci :)

I'm so glad you didn't lose any chickens, but how awful to think about your coop being violated like that!
