There was a squirrel in the henhouse this morning. Not really the henhouse, but their summer condo, the chicken tractor. In the winter, they spend cold days and all night in the chicken house that Steve built, and in the summer they sleep in the tractor. A tractor is just a basic A-frame, that can be easily moved around the garden.
In any event, there was a squirrel poking around at the chicken tractor this morning. I was keeping an eye on it all morning, more for the potentially entertaining chicken/squirrel interaction than out of fear of the damage it would wreak. What it ended up doing was pure entertainment. It slithered its way under the 2×4 tractor frame and started going nuts (pun!) in the tractor. It had no idea how to get out. I didn’t feel sorry for it at this point, just amused. The hens were all staring at it as if if the squirrel were stupid. The squirrel ended up slithering back out of the tractor, so I didn’t have to let it out. I couldn’t help but take a video.
