This week I lost 2 of my hens to what I figured was a fox. I have seen them around. Then 2 days later the flock was squacking (sp) up a storm. Looked of the deck and saw a beautiful bobcat sneaking up into the yard. That night we had to carry the peeps to bed, they wanted to roost on the front perch. I guess to them it was safer. Now the poor things are stuck into the coop until we can build a run and the bobcat forgets easy food. May be a while. The up side is that my darling said I need to get more chicks now.
