Chicken Watching

My mom and my Auntie Allie (from Hawaii) were watching Vasalini's Chicken Cam last night. It was pretty hard to see because it was 1:30AM on Martha's Vineyard and all the chickens were asleep. Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! All of a sudden they spotted a raccoon trying to get into the coop. Both Mom and Auntie Allie wrote to the chicken guy, all worried about the chickens. They thought they saw a raccoon with an EGG in his mouth, too. Sneaky little devils.

The chicken guy wrote back that there was an electronic gate on the coop and that (if it was working) the raccoon couldn't get in. He also mentioned that "Mr. Raccoon may be taking a vacation soon". What do you suppose that means? Hmmmmmmmm??

If you want to check on the chickens, click the link above, and wait for the "Gumby" picture to go away and then for the live video feed to load. Nothing like watching a bunch of chickens wander about, or listening to a rooster crow, or watching a sneaky raccoon trying to steal eggs in the middle of the night.
