Visiting Squirrel

I noticed this squirrel on the privacy fence. It didn't take long for him to decide the chickens weren't a threat, and head to the bird feeder!

The squirrel ate a few minutes and then fell or jumped from the feeder. He was soon noticed by the chickens.

When one chicken sees something, it seems they all see it! Soon they were all checking out the squirrel! He attempted to ignore them.

He did a great job pretending he wasn't surrounded by chickens.

Lexi wanted to "check out" the squirrel too!

The hens soon lost interest since he was too big to eat!
I let the dogs out! The squirrel high-tailed it back into the safety of the tree! The dogs did not loose interest like the chickens. They kept "watch" until we brought them in for supper!

Ya'll Come Back!



  1. Hi Lorilee,
    Great pictures! The one of the squirrel in flight is fantastic. I love squirrels. Their antics are like naughty little children, so fun to watch. My dad has a feeder and they hang upside down to get at those seeds. So funny to watch! Is your little dove still with you? Hugs, Loretta

  2. Fun post! I'm very nervous about how my dog will act with chickens (if I ever get them). Glad to see that yours are co-existing !

  3. I think squirrels, are so adorable!
    My neighbour, sadly she really dislikes them, and calls them giant rats!Lol

    Your dog, is just as adorable, if not more!


  4. My mom always called the eggs cackleberry's too! I so love your sweet blog...all of it is my heart-of-heart stuff too. I have chickens all over inside and out and cat's, horses' dogs'and birds! I live in So. Central Utah, red rock country. Come say hi on my blog too if you'd like...
