Why I Can't Have Chickens

Guess who I found in my back yard this afternoon?




He left when he saw me in the window.







So we have coyotes sunning themselves in the Spring, and racoons and squirrels hanging upside down from the plum tree in the summer (eating all the plums.)

I'd really love to have a compost pile and a small flock of chickens, but I don't want to ENCOURAGE these critters to come around . Any suggestions? Advice?
