We lost our first chicken last night. I put 7 five week old french black copper marans in the run with older chickens and they roosted on a firewood pile that I left in there. Sometime during the night the poor little chick fell down between the woodpile and the chickenwire and couldn't get out. Being stuck right against the chickenwire, it succombed to a predator. I think it was one of our rescue cats. We found it this morning pinned against the wire without a head or feet. We are very upset about it and I feel very stupid for not realizing that that was a danger spot in the run for the chicks.
