Bad news for me today.....it all started around 1am. I am a light sleeper and I heard what sounded like a cat screaming. The dog freaked out and growled. I went to the back door, opened it & flipped on the light, which would not come on, I heard something run & out the door the dog ran. I grabbed the flashlight, threw on my boots and ran out after the dog. After looking for about an hour and driving all around the neighborhood, I headed back home & there was the dog trotting back into the driveway......yeah!
Now for the bad part....I get up and go to work this morning. I was so tired from chasing Buddy, that I didn't realize one of my main roosters (King Tut) had not crowed. When I got home from work at 6pm:barnie, he always runs to the car and greets me. He was not there today. I searched the property & found his feathers everywhere.
. I hate predators. Not sure if it was a fox, coyote, or raccoon, but my CCL rooster is gone. I have 3 girls being shipped from California this month suppose to be bred with him. I have another CCL roo, he's just not show quality. And he's not King Tut. You'd think with over 100 chickens, I wouldn't get attached to one. Think again.
On the bright side, our little dog is fine. Thank goodness. He definitely could've faired much worse as well.
