An egg thief came visiting the other day.........he/she was most unwelcome and I spent some time dealing with this pest to chase it out of our yard! It is a Sand Monitor and was about 1 metre long.
This got into the chook house because when I am home I usually let out some chooks to pick around the yard and it came in through the open gate.
I didn't know whether to be scared or to laugh as the chooks made an awful racket but kept going near to have a look. I finally chased it away and out of the yard. I did have the help of my little band of ducks...........well that's what I liked to think anyway. I think they thought I had the food bucket and only followed me for a feed! LOL!
They had lots to say also, but I think it was along the lines of .." Hey! where's the FOOD"!
