She's the second death of the flock of four. She was our best layer, since she started laying she hasn't missed a day. She also didn't live to be a year old. about two months ago i lost one to a raccoon and today one died form a hawk. There's all kinds of predators out there. There's not much food for the hawks in the winter and they might come back for the rest of their early thanksgiving meal. My hens won't be free ranging for a while. Now i'm left with with two hens.
