There was a MONSTER in my yard!!

So I went outside to take a couple pictures of my spring blossoms before this weekends cold temperatures kill them off and I notice these HUGE tracks in the mud....I couldn't believe the size of the tracks, I was racking my brain on what kind of foul creature could have left prints like this...

This picture has my foot in the picture to show size of the prints ( I wear a size 8 shoe!!)

This picture shows the depth and therefore the weight of the creature

Another clear picture of the prints

Then it dawned on me........













The chickens were out wandering the yard!!!!!!

Guess my hens are really getting big! Thus concludes this edition of paranoia theater!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Farmpony~ I love you!!! That story is hilarious!!!!!


As far as the size of my chickens, they are all 10-12 pound heavy breed chickens.
Barred Rocks, Silver laced Wyandottes, Black Australorps and Buff Orpingtons.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
