I got a phone call this morning from my grandmother that out of the 18 chicks I had ordered for them only 4 are still alive. They had them in a chicken wire pen with a roof on it and apparently something found a way into the pen and killed and ate all but 4 of the biddies. My grandmother called crying this morning and I want to as well. there were 7 buff Orpingtons, 4 Partridge Cochins, 2 Americaunas, 2 partridge Silkies and 3 black Frizzle Cochins. All thats left is 1 buff Orpington, 2 Americaunas and 1 black Frizzle Cochin. I'm so upset right now and I feel bad for me grandparents because my grandfathers favorite breed is buff Orpington.
