I'm pretty new here. I posted my recent losses a few days ago. About a month ago, 2 of my remaining 4 chickens were taken by raccoons. A friend gave me two girls, and my hubby lost one a few days later. I was ready to just throw in the towel. But yesterday for my birthday he got me three six week old ladies. An Easter Egger, an Olive Egger, and a Wellsummer. Back up to my flock of 6. I told him to keep the coon trap out, and allow me to handle these ladies until they know my property. I can't handle another loss for a while. He was so sweet and supportive to push me to stick with raising these ladies. Here are my newest additions hanging in the garage until they are coop ready. Along with my favorite pic of me and Samantha...one of the original six. Only her and Big Red remain.
