We're trying not to move the mailbox. But the mailbox is right outside the door, and my sister says the hen will peck at anyone who gets anywhere close to that nest. I don't know what we're going to do.

^well then if they're mean birds I'd move 'em or actually I'd have someone else move them wearing a helmet and gloves

(confesses to being a little afraid of being pecked by a bird )

OK, I called the landlord a few weeks ago, and the girls on the other half of the duplex said a guy came over and sprayed all the eaves, so I'll have to go out and check if I still hear them inside. I haven't seen Thor in a week or so, but he's gone for a while and then come back again before. He's usually out guarding when it's sunny and hot, in the afternoons and evenings.

What we did was close up the mailbox with duct tape. It was such a horrible place for a nest. It would drive the mother insane, what with all of the people coming to the door being, to her, a threat to her eggs and then her babies. It's too bad. I would have loved a bird nest right out of the window, I've been a bird lover all of my life. But it's not really fair to the birds, and they need to build a nest somewhere else.
