    I am very sad and devastated this morning. I woke up and went to feed and check on my ducks and the seven that was in my pen were all dead. Something broke into my pen because my electric fence was unplugged sometime after I left for work yesterday. I don’t know if one of my kids or my nephew or what unplugged my extension cord. I have just the three that I hatched out of my last egg hatching left. Along with the 12 eggs I have in my incubator now. I guess I can reconfigure how I have my pen protection configured now and make it better.

    So sorry about that! I understand your feeling.
    Knowing what killed them is important so that you can protect your other babies.
    Best to you....

    My wife said that it was dogs that they was on our back porch also because they killed one of her rabbits she had in a pen on the back porch.

    What ever it was killed for the fun because nothing was eaten from them.
