The Chicken’s Visitor

We have a chicken named Pei at our house. On warm days she gets to come out in a mobile open-bottomed coop known as a chicken tractor (when they’ve pecked over all the grass in one area, you can move it to the next). Recently she had an interesting visitor.

A Red-tailed Hawk, about as big as the chicken. Oddly enough, she seemed unconcerned about him perching on top of the tractor and flying from side to side. Usually she would be upset about nearby predators. The hawk has been back a few times, but can’t seem to figure out chicken wire!
