    I had to work late last night so the hens were out later than usual. When i went outside to the coop i noticed a bunch of feathers by the gate (scattered pile) .[​IMG] They were from my favorite hen. I thought for sure she was dead. All the girls were inside the coop. I picked up the hen that all the feathers belong to & she seemed fine but a little stressed. I couldn't find any wounds but she is missing some feathers. I don't know who or what she tangled with. They are all happy this morning, eating & walking around like nothing happened.

    Well, I hope you don't have any more attacks on your flock!
