    So, I have become very attatched to my chickens... I mean, my small flock is absolutely amazing... I really love those birds. I had them since they were a week old and now they are crowing, laying eggs, just really grown up; however, the "baby" of the flock... who is the same age but still looks like an over-grown chick who had some growing issues due to a leg injury that left her slightly crippled, my little Lucy, was my favorite.

    I just left for my 3rd year of college and I get a call from my dad that Lucy has been killed. I guess he was working on fixing the chicken coup and let the flock free range while he worked; but instead of watching them or putting them away, he went in to eat dinner and then got distracted by company that came over. Sure enough, a hawk came and grabbed my little girl. My parents found all her feathers in my neighbor's field. That little hen had so much spunk and fighting will. I mean her leg injury was very drastic and she probably should have been put down, but her will to live was so strong I spent quite a bit of money and took her to a vet. She was getting so much better. The day before I left, I was just stilling outside and Lucy hopped over to be, sat in my lap and cuddled. She was so sweet and I will really miss her.

    MY summer really sucks...
    First my dog get's hit and killed....now my favorite little chicken get's snatched.

    I'm sorry for typing this all...I know it's pretty pointless... I just really needed to vent.
