    When i went to the pen today & put the ducks away & kicked the geese out I took a head count and noticed there was 1 hen missing. I quickly realized it was my baby girl Zuri, my super sweet, friendly little girl..

    She wouldnt come in the night before so we immediately started looking for her. As i rounded the corner to go in the field I saw her laying by the gate, not moving...then i saw the blood, all over her back. I screamed and ran towards her & went to pick her up right away and froze about half way to her & just started crying. I couldnt even touch her, i was too scared to hurt her anymore than she already was.

    I dont know what got her but it ripped her whole back off, all i saw was blood & insides. I freaked, she was one of my favorite girls, I honestly dont know how she even got away, i dont know how she was still alive.

    I had to have my brothers come cull and bury her for me. I couldnt even look at her.

    There has been way too many ups & downs with my Scovies lately and I am seriously considering getting rid of all the other birds so that I can just focus on them and their needs.

    I am still so upset over it, it was probably the worst thing i have ever seen. I just want my baby back. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Soooo Sorry, Bleenie. [​IMG] [​IMG] Seems it's been a rough few months with your Scovies. Life gets that way sometimes but, THANKFULLY, doesn't stay that way. Hang in there and do what you need to. Take care and I will be [​IMG] for you.
