Thanks everyone, exhausted after the long night.
This week isn't starting off well. Went out this morning for first round of egg collection. Got to the Chocolate orp pen, and just started to cry. Nest box ripped apart. All my hens are gone, and my rooster left dead. Has to be at least fox, more likely dog or coyote to rip wood apart. All that's left of my hens are feathers. I do have chicks to rebuild the chocolate flock, but honestly asking myself if I even want to. The only positive note is the chicks are housed either in brooders or a separate pen.
So, anyone I have that planned for chocolate orpington from my flock, you can contact @kittydoc or a FB only member, David Bradley. PM me if you want Davids contact info. If I do start over its 6 months away fro eggs.
Positive note, I have a beautiful Angus heifer as a "teaser cow" visiting our pasture for a while. She is our neighbors baby girl, and she is helping Fanny remember she is a cow.. not a goat, lol. This is to encourage her to regain her regular cycles and allow her to be bred. They have bonded quite well, and will help Fanny settle in for her visit to the bull coming up. Both girls will be going to the bull pasture to be bred at the same time.
