    We lost all our girls last night to a fox, we think. Nothing left of all six, even our meanest hen. There where lumps of feathers of each hen. Small black pile, several white piles, goldy brown pile and whitish brown pile. Our backyard looks just like a depressing Christmas.

    May you bok in peace, Mama/Paisley/Imelda/Hildegard/Ethel and Audrey.

    OMG! I'm so very sorry for your loss, how devestating [​IMG]

    "regular" people (as in, not chicken peeps) may not understand the lingering sadness in the days ahead, but we are here for you.

    I know how you feel. I had a weasel get my hens a couple of weeks ago. I walked out to let them out of the coop that morning and they were all dead. It killed all of them and only took one! Stupid wasteful creatures. I had no idea that something that eats chickens could get into a coop completely surrounded with 1" wire. I am rebuilding my coop to be weaselproof and starting all over with chicks. I miss seeing my hens running around the yard during the day [​IMG]
