So, I have to little piggies....that we are raiseing for the freezer. Thier trough is of course next to the fence, for easy filling. Well, as pigs do, when they eat, food falls all over the place, and my chickens stand at the fence, waiting to get a treat. Today...DH and I was cutting firewood, when I hear a commotion over by the coop and hog pen. I ran over there to find the pigs MAULING one of my little sweet BR babies. They had pulled her THROUGH the 1x2 fencing. She was squaking....they were smooshing her into the mud with thier big fat noses. I literally had to get a stick and beat them off. DH ran up, while I kept the pigs at bay....then I grabbed a rake, thinking I was going to pull a dead or dying chicken from the pen. Grabbed her by the leg with a rake, then DH reached in and grabbed her leg and layed her on the ground. I was in tears...she is soo sweet...loves to sit on my lap....talks to me. I bent over, and picked her up....and she raises her head...blinks at me...and starts cooing like a dove. I held her close for a few minutes...smoothing her feathers....and decided to let her rest in the nest box. I went back to cutting wood...and after about 15 minutes...I went to check on her...just knowing I was going to have to bury my sweet girl. Well, there she was...greeted me by the willow...just cooing...and walking around like nothing happened! THANK YOU GOD!!! She is a sweet baby..and I was dreading the thoughts of loseing her. I scooped her up, and took her to the garden...to give her all the japanese beetles I could find! She is fine now...cant even tell that she was pulled through a 1x2 hole!!
