I'll get back and read what I've missed but right now I'm just so, well you know. I have a hen who has sat on eggs and yesterday I heard peeping and this am I checked and not chick. She only had one egg left that was good.
I came home from school and no egg, no chick, nothing. No sign of an egg at all! I can't stand it. The only thing I can figure is a squirrel got in there and took the egg.
Now I have been seeing digging around the base of the run. Near the boards at the bottom. I figured a mouse/ mole and I have been setting traps but caught nothing.
I will be home tomorrow and will be digging around the base of the run with a pick or hoe.
I just can't stand that that egg and chick are gone. that poor hen has sat all this time for nothing. I think it's her second time sitting too. She was in another nest on eggs. She has been good about staying on these eggs. I have been taking a new egg every now and then.
I'm just so upset I want to burn ever tree down and get any squirrels. Dig ever hole and get every mouse/mole or whatever. I want to smash something I'm so mad.
