Many a moon ago I discovered this truth: When building a fence around your chicken coop you don’t make it strong enough to keep the chickens in but to keep the carnivores out. I rebuilt my fence to that ideal or so I thought. Carnivores are clever in their pursuit and relentless in their search for a weakness in the defenses’.
Such a weakness was found in my coop, one loose board high up on the south side.
This morning I found only feathers.
I’m sure there is an analogy to the health care bill that could be made here but all I know is that I will now have to buy my Easter eggs.
