2 of my hens disappeared this week. The hens sleep inside a little house, but were free to run around in the goat pen during the day. I am sure that this pen is dog and coyote proof, but a racoon or bobcat could certainly get in. One coincidence is that an owl has been hanging around lately. He had a big sounding hoo... hoo-hoo voice, that we would hear at night, but I didn't actually see him. Do owls hunt by day, or only at night? I have locked the remaining hens up in a smallish but totally secure pen that only maybe a weasel could find a way into. No more freedom for the girls.
