In the Brooder
- Apr 13, 2007
I came home today to find a hawk in my coop eating one of my first chickens, Bugga. Last year I got her ( a silver-laced wyandotte) and her coop-mate, Deucey ( an australorp) from our local Tractor Supply. They were my first chickens and now I have a 10x40 run and large coop for them and two more. I had netting on top, but the Hawk just put a hole in it. I buried her immediately in the garden that she loved and I am just having a hard time with her loss. My chickens are like family and I am sooo sad. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
