I watch my best friend's daughter everyday after school, and she only seems to listen 50% of the time to me. She loves my chickens and is always out with them. I'm always reminding her they are not dogs and don't be so rough with them (she's 10 almost 11). I had them all in the coop yesterday, and let her give them treats. I went out and got an egg she told me was in the nest box. Then she continued to pet my broody hen while I was gone. She was outside with them until her mom came to get her, then she was gone. Well I got out to feed everyone this morning.... she left the nesting box open all night! I was so mad!!! Anything could have just gotten in and gotten them. Stray cats in the neighborhood sit on the coop roof at time trying to find a way in, and she gave them a freebie last night!!!! I did a head count and everyone was there. Yet, my broody was exposed to freezing temps and winds last night all night with no roof over her head. She was still on the eggs this morning though, I just hope it wasn't too much for the eggs with the chilly temps. I emailed her mom with the situation... but I doubt her mom will care, she doesn't give a hoot about any animal. If they were gone, she would have just said... that's nature, something would have gotten them one way or another. I'm still steamed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
