I spent almost a month coming up with my perfect flock. 2 silverlaced wyndottes, 1 light brahma, 1 partridge brahma, 2 RIR, 2 Buff wyndottes and 2 Cuckoo Marans. We just moved them out to the big coup last week as they are about 8 weeks. We seperated them from the bigger girls and let them integrate during the day when we were around. Today my husband open the coup and decided all the girls could wander around the yard and he checked on them on and off. Then he went to the store and came back to find that our new puppy had gotten into the coup and killed my new flock. I am so sick. Most of our feed stores don't have chicks now because the weather in Marana has spiked to over a 100. I am on the verge of tears and needed to vent.
