My fave chick of all time was snatched by a stray cat today. I guess my flaws in the coop and run could have been the problem. How many chickens have you lost to preys in your first 2 months of raising chickens? I have lost 3 and Im thinking about quitting, its so sad to lose a life. Theyre not very good pics, I have better ones but it wont download for some reason... Her name is Ugly Betty because when we went to the ladys house to see what kind of chickens she had, the first one I saw was Ugly Betty. My mom kept telling me she was ugly and unhealthy looking but she was so bright orange that she caught my eye. In the car, Ugly Betty started flapping her wings and my mom freaked out, screaming "Ahhhh dont let ugly betty eat me!". I was like OMG mom thats so mean, but really original. She was the smallest of our whole chicken family, maybe thats why she was taken... But its really hard for me and I feel silly to be this sad about a chicken. Thanks for listening to my story, its always good to vent out.
