    go figure, my hen layed an egg under the brooding area after a petrifying morning and one of her fellow hens getting killed when our dog snuck out of the house...

    Some gals take care of business no matter what. Sorry for the loss of your other chicken.

    Quote:trying to, the teenagers never want to listen about shutting doors.... they left the basement door open when they left for the school bus. One hen is missing still, but it was one that didn't lay anymore. Our mallard duck passed this evening. He had seemed scared, but got better with no outward signs of injury, but he passed while I was at an appointment. The rest are fine.

    I'd make the teenagers dig holes at last 3 ft deep, to bury each bird that died, and then fill them in! Even if you proceess the birds, I 'd still make them dig those holes. Natural or real punishment for actions or inactions. [​IMG]
