I am beside myself, crying all dang day. Last night, a fox burrowed under my outdoor run wall and got inside. I had not secured the door between the coop and the run enough apparently, because the fox got inside. I accept complete responsibility for this, so please, don't give me a hard time about my shortcomings. You can imagine what happened I have one chicken who survived .. how? I have no idea. She doesn't appear to have any injuries .. a few feathers missing, but no apparent cuts or lacerations. I only had 7 chickens to start with and am now down to 1. My chickens free ranged in the afternoons until bedtime. I let out my lone chicken this afternoon, and she fought very hard against going back to the coop at bedtime. I don't know if it's trauma, or if she relied on the other chickens to lead the way or what. I eventually went out and picked her up off the garden fence she had perched on and carried her back. She fell asleep in my arms and just seemed so relaxed. I felt bad putting her back in the coop .. the scene of the slaughter I know I'm being dramatic and probably over-sensitive .. but these chickies were my very first and were more pets than anything else. They were just hatched in March and hadn't even laid their first eggs yet. Anyway .. on to my question .. will she be okay by herself? I'm trying to find her some new flock-mates, but it's proving to be very difficult to find chickens around her age. Most people around here are only selling babies, and while I do plan to rebuild my flock, I don't know that small chicks is the way to go right now. Has anyone dealt with this before? Can anyone suggest what to do?
