Sorry but mum has been poorly for two days and has been in bed, but today she is up so that's good.
Yesterday she was in bed and Ash and Murph got out, Dad was so distracted with everything, he felt bad, but there is nothing you can do when those two get together. Anyway Dad was upstairs telling mum about this when Charlie Rooster started calling me, Dad ran to the window and saw Charlie hanging from the foxes mouth. You see the fox had Lana hen, but Charlie ran at that fox and the fox let go of Lana as Charlie stood between the fox and Lana the fox caught Charlie, Dad ran down stairs with me and the stick that goes "BANG" the fox lost concentration for a second, charlie swung his legs up got that fox and escaped.......Hes one tough Bird that.
Charlie then ran between the fox again and the hens made himself very big and ran the girls to the house, where he knew they would be safe. The fox decided with the peeps around to go off and ran at the hens who had been split in the first attack, and were furthest away from the house, he almost got them but Dad let me out and I ran that fox, we ran a long way, I did some digging, but he did get away from me...this time. I came home later all covered in mud but the peeps said I did well, Mum is worried that one day I will catch him, and get myself hurt, but he may not come back now as Charlie did well, and we are a great team.
Mum was very worried about Ash and Murph of course as they were still out, but Murph came back soon and Ash went to the front porch and came in that way, they have not even wanted to go out today........I wonder why. I am on look out for if it comes back. Charlie Roo has been trying to tidy Hen Lana's tail feathers as they are looking how shall I say "Chewed"
Anyway I send my licks and woofs
Take care all of you
