I love these creatures... They are very cheeky! Mind you, I know of a few people here in Grazalema that want to get rid of them/shoot them as they say they eat the baby chickens..... I wonder if the real culprit is a mongoose and the martens are innocent... :)

I have quite a bit of video of these cheeky chappies now, I will put together the best bits soon. Quite the little characters  :)

Sadly I think there is the same feeling for them around here to, although our neighbour loses some of his baby chickens to his cats. Give your chickens an enclosure that will protect them I say!  :banghead:
