Lying awake last night, I heard the barking of a fox. It's a distinct sound, similar to a yappy little dog and yet not like a dog. Sometimes it even sounds like a cat. Have a listen here.
I worry about those chickens of mine. They're not only my own personal egg factory, they're pets with distinct personalities. They chase the cat, they chase the horses and while they don't chase the dogs, Big Bertha has been known to peck my chocolate lab on the nose from time to time.
I think Bertha thinks she can take just about anything.
