Should have been William and Mary. You can't watch the chickens all the time.

Two alpacas offer hen protection
Tremayne Farm, near Camborne, has taken on two Peruvian alpacas - named William and Harry - to keep predators away.
Farm manager Giles Greenhough said: "Because of the alpacas' nature, they'll take up the role of becoming guardians of the flock."
Farm director Lisa Rowe added: "Alpacas are used extensively in Australia and New Zealand to safeguard sheep."
She added: "We know that happy hens lay the tastiest eggs and for that reason, we recruited the alpacas."
