    The first chickens we ever got were eaten by a raccoon. Their names were Lizzie,Jane,Kitty,Lydia, Starbuck, Andromeda, and Peck. They all were unique in their own way. Kitty, was a demonic chicken who hated me right from the start. I have no idea what I did, but she would peck me at every available opportunity. She had the characteristic of having almost all of her tail feathers plucked except for the fuzz and two longest ones. I called her Devil Chicken. Now I wish I could have her back, and I would never do it again. We also lost a chicken named Cubert, but that's another thread. Please comment if you want more..... otherwise I wont waste valuable BYC space.

    Oh lost all of those? It was hard enough losing one chicken, I can't imagine losing all those feathered friends! Did it happen all at once or were they picked off one at a time? fun. I am so sorry for your loss!

    It's always hard to lose them, especially in such a horrible way. [​IMG] We all understand here, so it is good to talk about it and start healing your heart. I have many special memories of favorite chicks that have been lost...................

    What a horrible way to lose your pets. If you have photos of your chickens, let's see them!

    I am so sorry that you lost your first chickens. I hope you can get a better secured coop and run, and the get some more hens. But it is still good to grieve for the ones you have lost. [​IMG]

    Yes, we did name them after Pride and Prejudice characters! [​IMG] It was actually Sophie's idea. What a smart girl I have [​IMG]

    We did secure the coop and it is now Chicken Fort Knox. Currently we have a flock of six in there (our roo and his five hens), but our first ladies have a special place in our hearts <3
