So I am out doing chores today. I went in and fed everyone. I went outside and did the feeding in the outside coops and ducks. Went back in, dumped all the ice out of pans. Everyone was fine and running around in their pens. I go out to fill buckets of water and open the door to complete mayhem! The chickens in the far pen especially were going berserk! I start watering and get to the Minorca pen and here lays my one non-Minorca, Snowbell the White Cochin, laying there dead! What the heck happened?!?!?!?! The only thing I can figure is that the pen went into spaz mode as they sometimes do when my young boys try breeding and it freaks out the young girls. I think her neck was broken. I am so peeved. She was the only White Cochin I had, so it isn't a great loss from my breeding program, but still, I really liked her. I only name the ones I really like. Hubby said we can hook up some cameras in the pens, that way we can see what goes on when we are not there. I hope this is not the beginning of things to come.
