    When I opened the coop Friday morning to let the girls out,
    missing was my favorite, the Black Cochin Mrs. Bloomers. [​IMG]

    Her 2 chicks came to my feet and that's when I realized she
    was gone. Have been bummed all weekend ~ [​IMG]

    Terribly sorry you lost her [​IMG]
    They always go for the favorites, it seems.

    Set your traps and game cams and find the culprit, or he'll be back.
