    I lost Clever last week and Curious this week. So now the ladies are forced to stay in there coop until 2 oclock when my dad gets home to finish the top of there run to keep the hawk out. They are stuck in there coop and are not pleased about it. When i found Curious yesterday i also found feathers that looked like butterscotches and her feathers were all ruffled but shes fine, Well either the hawk tramutized her or she doesnt like being stuck in the coop because when another hen comes near her she runs around the coop three times squwaking!

    She's probably a little bit upset over over the hawk attacks, and she is also probably a little bit upset, being stuck indoors.

    She'll be OK in a few days.
