    Did you hatch them yourself or get them from like TSC? If you bought them at TSC or a Mill, they came from a hatchery, and were already vaccinated.


    Oh, I'm so sorry...I hate death in any form...but that just turns your stomach, I know.



    Go back through the thread to find Sally. Once you find one of her posts, there's a link in her siggy for her Pallet Haus and how to build. But yes, you definitely want to make it easy to clean if you're going to use it for quarantine & broodies! Don't want to infect momma and brand new babies.

    So sorry eweaber. What kind of predator could get in like that and do that damage without you seeing the entry point?

    Cskotek, great pictures. Very cool.

    I have 30 pekin eggs sitting here if you would like some to hatch to replace some of your flock. You pay shipping, I'll donate the eggs. Just let me know how many you would like. They are hatching really well. I have a bunch in the bator & every one is developing.

    I try to fence my runs top & bottom for exactly this reason. There are still animals small enough to slip through some wire though. A weasel or mink will do exactly what you described.

    I think I found where the critter got in. I built my run this winter when the ground was frozen. With the couple days of warm weather some of the ground under my door frame thawed and created a gap. I didn't see it until I went out a couple minutes ago and my serama roo was outside of the run. The hole will be fixed today and a trap will be set to catch the critter.
