    Well it is hard to lose my chicken friends. We have been battling storms and artic cold here in Buffalo, western NY area. I was worried about the cold. But didn't realize a predator. Don't know what it was yet. Was trying to get into my coop. "It" got my little brown leghorn cross. I am sad about that, but my little buddy rooster. "Arthur" gave his life to protect the rest of them. I am devestaded but at the same time very proud of him.

    I am going to miss you little buddy.

    Athrur when he was learning to "round them up" before he was grown.

    The little brown leghorn cross in the picture was our other loss.

    I'm really sorry. I lost my first hatched little chick. I cried all morning. He was so lively the night before. It hurts.

    That's so sad about your cute rooster. I hope you can get a replacement soon.

    Thanks everyone. I just feel so bad for them. I know it happens every once in a while. I just wish I could figure out what I could have done differently.
