Well something dug under my chicken coop Wednesday night and killed 3 of my pullets and seriously injured 2 others. I had to put down one of them because it was so badly injured but the other one seems to be hanging in there. I am so sad and mad that the predator (I believe it was a raccoon) got my favorite silkie . It always seems to happen to my favorites , my last partridge silkie was killed about 2 months ago while free ranging needless to say no more free ranging without supervision. I don't understand why the raccoon all of a sudden attacked the chickens because they have lived in the coop for over 3 months without an attack . Needless to say the coop is now fort Knox. Anyway, I hate predators ! I did oder some new fuzzy butts today from Ideal though and they should be here on thursday so that is one good thing, now I just have to be patient until they get here.
