My poor hen was snagged by a fox just last week, I am hoping to find a hen locally to replace her. My hope is to have one about at laying age, but if I have to start over with poults I certainly will. However, buying 10-15 from a hatchery is too much for me. Any suggestions? btw I now have a wonderful guard dog who made quick work of dispatching the fox! The rest of my flock is safe and sound!
