    I've been having problems with an egg-eater and couldn't figure out who it was. After finding poor little Butterscotch dead in the fence I've had no eggs eaten! I think the other hens might have gotten tired of it and took the matter into their own wings!

    I was talking to Steven and told him I feel just awful for thinking this way but I've been losing about 6 eggs a day in the coop and could never catch anyone with evidence or "egg on their face". But since we found her dead I've lost no eggs in the coop at all! I'm thinking Lissa, Buffy, and Red,,,, Fuzzy Butt is too nice to be involved in gang stuff.

    It's always the nice ones. Have you searched FuzzyButt's fuzzy parts for weapons?
