    Well I think today is probably one of the saddest days of my life. My husband went outside to find that our Partridge Wyandotte flock had been decimated by an owl. The owl was still inside the pen and when hubby opened the pen, my Great Pyrenees ran inside and shook the owl to death. It was a Great Horned Owl. I can't believe that my gorgeous babies are gone. I think its just starting to hit me.

    We even had avian netting over the top of it. Some decent netting too. Anyway, somehow the owl broke through and got my flock. These were my babies. My pride and joy. My show stoppers. God I'm just sick over this.

    OMG so very very sorry to hear this happened I'm crying with you poor babies...................
    Dam owl, is it normal for an owl to kill a whole flock, that just seems like excessive over kill to me, and to think I saved one here a couple years ago that was caught in an illegal trap. I jhave deer netting over my run I take it you had the same and it still got in? OH My oh my I feel just terrible for you. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
