Do you ever have nightmares about your chickens?

    I had one last night where I found two of my chickens savaged to death and two all maimed and at death's door. [​IMG] There was a roaster full of 9 baby magpies in the run so I knew the adult magpies had killed my chickens and put their magpielets there. I threw them out on the ground I was so outraged. [​IMG] There seemed to be some evidence my DH had left the run door open all night. [​IMG] I'd rather have the dream where DH is "free-ranging" (stole that from jeepchick) than this nightmare again.

    Last night I had a nightmare that a giant snake at my whole coop- chickens and all. But then, I did have to kill a snake and bury a chick last night.

    I had one last night. [​IMG]

    Some five year olds tried to kidnap my hens and almost got away with it, and they put one in a ziploc. But don't worry, I kick their little butts. (Okay, that wasn't really a nightmare, but still. [​IMG])

    I had a worse one once, but I don't like to talk about it.

    Though this one isn't a nightmare, It makes me giggle:

    I had a dream that my little 26 ounce modern game was perched on the BBQ with a chef's hat and a spatula, grilling burgers.
