So, if anyone has been reading my posts they know I've been raising 2 barred rock chicks that my broody hen hatched, well we lost one to what I suspect to be a cat, we lost her a few days ago. The mother hen did what they do best and I guess moved their roosting spot to a safer place, but just 2 days ago, the last chick she had went missing, we saw no sign of her, no feathers, blood, or body. I think it was a cat that got her again. My mother hen went into the big coop area that we have set up for our older hens and perched there for the night, realizing she had no more chicks with her but as soon as they were let out in the morning she squeezed back into the small coop area which is where I housed her and my 10 week (more or less) chicks. She is walking around squawking and she didn't seem really interested in eating, is she searching for her chicks or mourning them?
