Hen vs. lizard

One of our New Hampshire hens found an interesting snack today, a little lizard. She ran around for about 10 minutes trying to eat it herself, but the other hens kept trying to steal it from her. Eventually, she tired of being chased, flipped the lizard up, and it flew straight down the hatch in one big bite. Pretty cool to witness!

    That is a big lizard for a hen to eat! I have seen my girls with a small snake (very small) and a small frog, but nothing proportionately sized like this lizard. That must have been something to see.
