The Wolf at the Door

The door to the big henhouse broke the other night... well, it's BEEN broken for a year. The handle is coming out of the inner door, and we close it with a hand-crocheted dishcloth. The outer door, half wood half screen, was torn by Lilly Ann as she attacked escaping starlings two years ago. It closes with a hook and latch. This door recently lost it's hinges, and they were replaced this week with two that have not proved adequate. When we go in to do chores, we must hook the door now on the inside so that Lilly cannot follow. Otherwise, the chickens that have now broken through into the feed portion of the house are at risk, since Lilly cannot always resist chicken temptation. Here is what I saw when I heard a noise the other night.
