Actress Rachel Weisz, 40, has found a unique way to keep coyotes away from the chicken coop on her family’s country home in upstate New York, and her 4-year-old son Henry is lending a hand!
“Apparently if human beings urinate around the perimeter of the chicken coop it keeps the coyotes at bay,” she explains. “Apparently they don’t like human urine.”
“My son has taken on this task and he is peeing his way around this fence. He’s serious,” says the Mummy star, who keeps a flock of nine hens and one rooster. “He drinks a lot and he saves his pee for the chicken coop.”
In addition to helping to keep the chickens safe, Rachel says her son really enjoys spending time with the creatures: “He plays with the chickens, he catches them.”
Henry’s father is Rachel’s fiancé, film maker and producer Darren Aronofsky, 41.
