Woke up this morning to a horrible massacre. Something got into our mini coop Sunday night and ate 9 out of 12 CM chicks. They were about 4 weeks out and we hatched them out from eggs from FlashPointFarm. I am so upset. The remaining 3 are keeping to themselves and seem in shock. I have them in with some other chicks they play with during the day so they are not alone. Please note : MAKE SURE windows are locked or have fencing over them, animals can open windows and get in. The chicks were in a temporaryt coop with a window that was not fenced in. We are building a new coop out of our pole barn so this was just for a month. Update: Monday night the coons came back. My DH heard noise outside and we immediately went out. Found 2 Coons in the hoop house and they had already slaughtered 20 or so meat birds. There were 24 in there. All are lost. I cannot believe how horrible those creatures are. They kill everything, not just what they need. What a waste. I honestly would not have been so out for revenge I suppose if something cam and took one or two at a time but, in the course of 2 nights they killed over 30 animals. The trap will be set this evening.
