On Monday, when I got home from work, I was greeted by a headless chicken. There she was, one of my 10 week-old Australorp pullets, laying dead in the chicken run. She was the runt of the flock, about half the size as her sisters of same age and never as social as the rest. Plus I think she was going blind. Needless to say she was on the short list of next years freezer camp, but I never expected this. My dad later told me that it must have been a squirrel. Squirrels do this, he said. They kill a chicken and take its head, but they wont eat the chicken. Just the head. Can any of you attest to the fact that squirrels will actually kill a chicken and make off with its head? What say ye? So I plucked her and feed her to my dogs. What you didnt think I was going to let a perfectly good chicken go to waste? Did you?
