Sadly I lost all of my small backyard flock (6) young girls (1 year old) to what I am assuming was a fox. They left behind a couple of small piles of feathers and 1 scared chicken. It has only been about a week.. (I'm getting a few pullets for her in a couple of weeks). She was doing fine...out of the run in the afternoon...with total supervision!!! and she would go back in the evenings. Now she is hanging out in the coop/nesting box. Had she turned broody?? or just freaked out still? I'm out of town for the next couple of weeks and I have a chicken sitter, that is less experienced than I am. Any suggestions? I will try and break her broodiness (if that's what it is) for the next few days. I'll take any and all helpful hints...do lone chickens like mirrors like other birds? dumb questions...I have a bunch of em.
