Yesterday afternoon the young road runner was back in the chicken yard again. Why is this suddenly happening? I think we have a theory.
Last week I thoroughly cleaned the coop, a half-yearly event, and because there are still mice hanging around I asked Dan to attach some flashing in the coop corners. This is where the mice go in and out after they have munched a hole in the wood lining. I know this change has the mice worried as I saw one peek out of a still unprotected section.
Here is Roadie with a gift for his/her mate, making an offering with the characteristic coo-coo sound.
