    There are feathers everywhere, and I actually held one of my olive eggers while she died. I lost more than 10 chickens in less than 45 seconds. What if one of my kids would have been outside feeding their ducks or rabbits? I let the chickens out, came inside to let my dog out, and while I was...

    Thank you so much for the advice. I guess I'll be busy sanitizing the coop and putting new sand in the run.

    Thanks for the encouragement everyone. Ash, all of my chicks seem to suddenly be dropping. (They're almost 4 months old.) All of my dorkings are gone and the adult dorkings flew out of the run and a fox got them. I was really looking forward to working with them. I am down to 3 Dominiques and...

    Some kind of sickness is sweeping through my flock and killing them, and I don't know what it is. They are fine one day and sick and dead the next. With all of the problems that I have had this year, I think I may just be done with keeping chickens!

    So, today I decided to go to the Wilton swap, and came home with a Black tailed buff marans, a Black copper marans, a Penedesenca, and 4 Olive eggers. They are just beautiful!

    In my garage of all places. They must have been hiding in there when I closed the door last night.

    I found my Barred Rock roo and my missing Barred Rock hen alive and well this morning, but I am still looking for my BLRW pullet, OE pullet, Buff Orpington hen, and my Silkie roo. Here's hoping ....

    I forgot to check to make sure all of my chickens were back in their pen from their brief time out of their run between showers, and now I am missing 7 chickens, including my 2 roos Needless to say, NONE of my flock will be let out of the run from now on. For those of you going to thw...

    I am down to 4 Dominiques, I think. I hope I have at least one female so I can breed them.

    My Springer likes to run at my chickens, but if they don't run, she gets scared and backs away from them.

    So discouraged with chickens right now. The breeds that I really want to work with seem to be the ones the predator is after. Needless to say, they are staying in their pen. I think it may be a hawk or some other bird of prey because it seems to only take my chicks. Nothing has gotten the big...

    Today is the first day since Sunday that I haven't lost a chicken. I wish the predator would show itself so I could get rid of it. I think the number of chickens it/they have gotten is up to 7.
