    Sorry about your BO hen. I know how it is. We have a hawk that likes to camp out near the barns waiting for our birds to show themselves. It really liked my bantams.

    sorry to hear of your loss. We have had a fox scouting our chickens. Electric poultry netting keeps them at bay.

    Evening all! Hope everyone is battened down for the coming mess of tomorrow. I have to work of course. Gave the big cheeps the leftovers this morning and opened up a can of corn and one of green beans (unsalted) and mixed them up and gave them to the silkies. Everything was eaten when I got back from work today. I freshened up the terrorist coop and everyone got their food and water loaded up so they can stay in tomorrow. I have to leave so early that it is better to keep them cooped then worry about them while I am at work. I am getting my new silkie girl this week! Cant wait to see her!

    ag29ande--sorry to hear of your loss. Everything is looking for food right now.

    Rancher--as usual, nice pics of your coops.

    Be well everyone!

    It can be, but doesn't have to be if precautions are taken. I'm not saying the weren't. Only you know that. However I would not just cough it up to being a downside of raising chickens either.

    I am sorry for your loss,

    Rancher

    Its funny when folks see all my chickens out and say "Wow, that's a lot of chickens", and I think heck that ain't nothing compared to what some other folks have.

    They also think it's a lot of work to take care of them but I don't see it as work. They play golf , which I think is a waste of good time and nothing to show for it. I raise chickens and feed family and friends who play golf.

    I just go out on a good day with a pitcher of lemonade, a lawn chair, magazine and take lots of breaks.

    Though right now it's would have to be a thermos of hot cocoa, an electric fire place, blanket and magazine and do nothing but sit there and watch the birds. [​IMG]

    It's funny too that I don't have a cat cuz I can't clean a litter box but I have chickens. Cat's never leave behind anything worth having. Hairballs and poop.

    Nice birds Stony.
