    This is just a flock update, I'm down to a total of 8 birds due to raccoon attacks.

    First up is Kernel a WL/EE, who had one eye damaged by a raccoon attack and the other by a rooster after the attack. Currently he is living in a cage so he can easily find his food and water.

    Next is the smaller/lower in the pecking order EE/BR rooster, who is looking for a new home:

    This is Red my EE rooster with one of the WL/EE cross hens, all the hens if given the option seem to want to stick with him rather then the BR/EE boys:

    The currently head rooster, the bigger EE/BR rooster, who is also looking for a new home:

    Everyone but the smaller BR/EE Rooster and Kernel:

    The BA/EE cross who scared the living daylights out of me today/last night. She wasn't in the coop and I couldn't find her roosting anywhere, but this morning when I open the door there was a bunch of feathers like when a raccoon attacks, but when I glanced up she was sitting on the roost safe and sound. But I have no idea how she got in [​IMG] :

    Quote:Thanks, I have to say it is very strange/different from last fall when I had 42 birds (I did give away two roosters, all the others are raccoon losses) to now when their is only 8 of them.
