My 2nd official post after lurking for a long long time. Ive lived here for 30 yrs and over that time have lost a chicken here an there. maybe one every 3 yrs or so. Not to much considering the predators that are around and we free range. so.............. I guess my luck ran out and earlier in the year coyotes came in and wiped out my entire flock in one night. the birds go in to a horse stall for the night, the lights are on and radio playing, the buggers came right in. I figure the coyotes had puppies and just took them all. anyway, I just got replacements, here are a few pics I took the day they arrived. I got some light brahma s, buff silkies and gold laced cochins.
