If you are the least bit squeamish, just back out now! Ok, I need to know if my chooks will be ok. We lost a cat about a week ago or so. Found her (followed our nose and found him!) under the deck where we can't reach him - on Tuesday evening - and it is gross. Then the chickens went under there and found her . . . . . . . . and they ate on him - Guess they didn't get the memo that we don't eat things with names around here! The next morning when we let them out, yep, straight for the cat and munched on him all day. Couldn't get them OR the cat out from under there because of lattice work, and the only opening is just big enough for an animal (we have oppossums that we think live under there and didn't want to trap them in when we build the deck, gee, we were afraid they'd die under there and stink up the place ) By bedtime yesterday we were down to bone and things crawling around - serious factor - thank God he was a runt, and never did get very big!! So, what's done is done. But will they be ok? Will I ever be ok?
