Hi, guys I posted two nights ago after a predator raided the outdoor brooder and killed all 13 of my (four week old) chicks. I was completely devastated. This was the first time I'd ever experienced anything like this, and this forum was the only place I could think to come to for support/talk. You were immensely helpful--after I mentioned that I didn't think I was cut out for all this, a bunch of you encouraged me to get-back-on-the-horse. So---Just wanted to let you know that I went and got new chicks last night. They're super cute (duh) and doing great. As one of you said, just learn from it and move on. And that's what I'm doing. Thanks again for all your support. Best, Anne Marie.
