    When I got home from work today I went to check on the girls and my SLW was dead. My other four birds are fine. They are in an enclosed run and coop but the were some wounds on the SLWs head. I'm not sure the wounds weren't from pecking after the fact though. There was an Osprey near by later in the evening. I guess I'll be securing the coop and run some more just to be safe.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I'm not sure a coop/run can ever be too secure so your plan to make it more so can only be for the better.
