    Came home from work today to find that all but two of my silkies were dead. I have cried all afternoon long.

    I don't know if I can handle this. I love my chickens so much and I just don't think I can go thru this again with new ones. I have eggs on the way and now I don't know if I even want to hatch.

    I came home to find them shredded in the coop. The door was shut and the fence intact. They were in the house. Found out after I had a meltdown out in the snow (while picking up chicken pieces) that the door was not shut until after the husband came home but before I did. He didn't even say he was sorry even though he said he went in the coop this morning looking for fresh eggs for a friend. THEY AREN'T EVEN LAYING!!!!!!!!!

    So do I hatch the eggs and toss the husband? I am not really serious about chucking him but I am so mad!!!!! These were the chickens I hand picked...sold the others that didn't meet standards....all but two gone...

    Life sucks!!!!

    [​IMG] lots of [​IMG]

    Hatch the eggs - chicks always, always will make you feel better.

    Take this as a learning experience and fix the problem - how ever the predator got in - not your DH [​IMG]

    Thanks for the hugs guys.

    Giving the husband the silent treatment. Not like that is a big punishment for him...if I tried to talk to him right now I would either be running around and screaming in the snow or crying. As I have done both today, I'm just done.

    Does anyone have to sleep after they have had something in their life fall apart or is it just me?

    I don't know what did it. There were too many prints in the snow from the kids, me, the geese, and where everyone was making snowmen and sledding to be able to track anything. I went all the way out to the wood line but still not sure and now it is too dark and I absolutely hate to be outside in the dark with nothing but a dinky flashlight tromping thru the woods.

    Oh you poor thing, how awful. I would probably be screaming. I'm so sorry for your loss.
