    I cannot stop crying. One of my hens was just killed by a hawk [​IMG] I miss her so so so so so so so so sooooooo much already.... we used to have 11 and now we have only 10 [​IMG] It was the first time i have ever had a pet die (except for 2 goldfish.... but they don't really count) I am just so sad, we had been so lucky with hawk attacks, not having any.... so lucky with any attacks actually, but now i guess our luck ran out [​IMG]


    RIP.... I think my biggest regret was not naming you. I will name everyone else now [​IMG]

    My mom found her.... The hawk was eating her... my mom was just too late [​IMG]

    I think beauty is perfect

    I have a hen very like your one and I always think she is just so pretty. - I know its really hard right now especially when you have not lost pets like this before. Hawks are preditors and killing for their food is just what they do. Unfortunately they do love chickens almost as much as we do!!!!!!!!
    They are not bad or horrible they are just a different bird in the food chain and they have a beauty and majesty too. Some people actually love them and breed them like we do chickens. Thing is though now that darn Hawk knows where you keep dinner! so you will need to think carefully about securing the rest of your flock.

    I know your really upset right now and hurt. - The wonderful thing about chickens though is chicken math (The good lord created so many of them for just such a situation!) This is the perfect oppertunity to get more hens, and is the best healing for a broken chicken lover heart!
    Beauty looks like she was a Red speckled Sussex

    Here is Bertha -

    You can get more!!!!!!!! Honestly there are loads of them !!!!!

    Oesdog - I do think Beauty is the best name for her your girl was very beautiful!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
