But while the girls are stretching their legs one of their avian cousins, a Pied Currawong (Strepera graculina), decided to check out the chicken’s accomodation through the door that was left open so the chickens could get to their water bowl.

Of course I did need to go and gently shoo it out as there is a possibility of disease transmission from wild to domestic birds.

Order was restored with the minimum of fuss and  I don’t think the chickens even looked up from their scratching.
