i went out yesterday morning to feed and water everybody and found all 7 of my 3 week old speckled sussex scattered across the yard, all dead. I bought these from bargain here on byc and was so looking forward to them, they had just started to show their beautiful coloring, also dead was my 7 week old olive egger roo. the only survivor was my olive egger pullet, (who was my favorite!) I heard some peeps from behind the futon on the patio and when I walked over she came out and I was so thankful she was ok. I have no clue what happened, no signs of harm except the brooder was knocked over and the bodies were scattered. we dont get cats bc of my dog, a friend mentioned maybe someone came in the yard and smashed them all, they did look kind of smushed. whatever it was i am so sad! now my sweet little pullet thats 6 weeks who has always been attached to me is in a dog crate by herself and when I go outside just peeps and paces and wants to be held 24/7. I sit outside and she just sits on my lap and if she ventures off as soon as she realizes she is more that 6 feet away from me she comes running back. I feel so bad for her being the only one left but do not want to introduce a 6 week old into the flock. I have 6 hens that are 20 weeks and I do not trust them to take kindly to her. Anyone have any suggestions for this sad family?
