    So I walked back to my coop this morning to find my gate wide open and my Quacker's body laying there limp!!! BTW all who are wondering....I HAVE built a roof over my run but i guess when the door is open it's a pretty easy target... this is all my fault! if i wouldn't have been in such a rush i probably would have remembered to latch the gate! It was below zero last night.

    :hugs sorry for your loss. We just lost our little twitch to a hawk because I have not had time to cover the run.

    No problem. It happens sometimes. I lost one of my ancona ducks to a raccoon over the summer because I forgot to shut their door.
