|When I walked inside the chicken house I noticed that the hole I had covered up earlier was uncovered again. Hmmmm.|
|This is a close up of the hole. As I was taking the 'hole' picture I saw an egg in the middle of the house. Hmmmmm. Then what do I see in the corner????????|
|I see Fred, the resident ground squirrel!!!! The answer to the chicken thief is Fred, the ground squirrel! Yes, apparently ground squirrels do in fact steal chicken eggs. I have since covered the hole up again, but this time set heavy rocks over it. And guess what? No more eggs are coming up missing!! I can only imagine how many eggs went down that hole! :) Fred scurried out to fast for me to take a pic of him in the chicken house.|
You all sent in some great answers. But no one guessed ground squirrel. Well, the next best thing to do was to shake up the papers with your guesses, reach in and grab a winner.
So without further adieu the winner is................................................

Congratulations Louise. Please send me your address ( I won't publish your comment with it) and I will send your gift box out to you.
ps--The interview with the prospective landlady did not go well. Let's just say she is, well, let me try to put it nicely, she is rather on the, very uptight side. But that's okay, because thanks to my oldest daughter she found another place for me to go look at tomorrow at noon.
I really enjoy these contests so look for another in the future!
Until next time.............................
