Im so sad!! Poor girls, I feel so guilty!!
Automn Morning Massacre
Thank you!!! yes very devestating, especially having to put the other 2 down and seeing them all mangled, Im sorry also!! I THINK it was a racoon, or a fisher? cat! ugh i had to dig a grave and bury them deep,been at it all day!!what a mess!! meat and feathers all over... ON the bright side (things must of been meant to be) I glanced at CL and A farm was downsizing and getting rid of 1 yr old layer hens 5$ each, the guy had atleast 300 ,.... I went right into the nest house and grabbed em off the nest boxes SO I KNEW FOR SURE they were still laying lol... UGH im so TIRED
This was actually, my fault, I remember rushing off last minute and I went down there I could of sworn I secured the coop, But I must have left the back door unlocked, as I do when I'm filling up their water and come right back, I had a few gotten 5 years back, and I rigged it up like Fort Knocks, so I blame myself, jeez....... One slip up I'm still in disbelief......But I can't believe I got such a good deal.....
thats a good doggie,!!! thank YOU
