    That is so sad... [​IMG]Here I worry about my ducks making nests out in the open, but not because of rain, I worry about the sun!

    You have to shepherd them and teach them where not to go once they leave the coup area, i can't believe they left that area so fast without older peas to show them the way, mine took months for the first batch to leave the coup area the next batches left much faster but still not as fast as your did, where did they go anyway?

    Unfortunately, no. This was quite a few years ago and we didn't even own an incubator at the time. None of the other peahens were broody, so there was nothing I could do for the eggs. [​IMG]
    I had lost peas to foxes before and this was just a last straw moment for me, I will not free range any hens from April thru August now. Hens are very hard to come by around here and I now understand why.
