    My coop was raided last night, this time by animals and they had to be big ones, dogs or coyotes.

    Woo - Nugget's little girlfriend
    Buffy - One of our first girls
    Lissa - From the Odessa
    GTS - Goody Two Shoes - Showed up during the day, injured but alive, lost a lot of feathers
    Twinkie - Last Runner Duck, one of my first ducks
    Ghost - Mallard/Runner cross, Emeril and Hershey's baby (originally reported as Quack)
    Luau - White bantam cochin roo, hatched at school - Showed up during the day unhurt but scared
    Show Off - Luau's pretty lady friend chewed to the bone, skinned, almost buried - c 3/26/11 recovering!!
    Black Beauty - Screech Mouses mom - Found injured, puncture wounds on back, BIG puncture wounds
    Woo Jay - Little Woo's son - Found in a bush, think neck is broken but he's trying to live so I'll try with him Puncture wounds all over neck and back 11/18 Woo Jay lost his fight
    Turk - My first Turken my favorite roo - Found on the other side of the fence by the road, injured but alive
    Red - My first RIR hen one of the ones left on my doorstep that started my chicken habit - Showed up during the day, scared but no obvious wounds
    Little Foot - Barred cochin roo the best defender ever
    Fuzzbucket, broody Frizzle hen had injuries I didn't know about and died during the night on her nest. 11/19
    Deceased 11/20 from injuries received: DB Baby Bird
    Deceased 11/26 from injuries received: FluffyButt, Fuzzbucket's sister
    Deceased 11/28/10 from injuries received: Cheepers


    One egg hatched a few minutes ago that Fuzzbucket was sitting on. The adoptive broody is doing a great job for a first timer.,

    The last duck (Quack) is terrified and hiding in a corner, Cheapers is injured and trying hide, won't let me touch him, Silkie Roo unhurt, Silkie Hen unhurt, Two Frizzles scared but unhurt, Tanker has wounds but is so big they couldn't drag him off and he's not hurt badly. They are all that's left in the coop. Blue and the ladies on the porch, and the tree chickens weren't bothered.

    Most of them were eaten in the coop, but some were taken over a 6 ft. fence and eaten outside the fence, some are just gone.
