Last night my dogs were going crazy barking, but I couldn't see any reason why. Until I went to feed my silkies this morning, 0nly to discover the coop door was wide open and my little paint cockerel was gone. It's been a hard few weeks here, lost a duck to my husband's dog, ordered baby chicks and lost one of them and now my silkie. I know these things happen but to lose 3 within a month is hard. I love all my babies, human, furry and feathered.
