Please say a little chicken prayer for my rooster Lola. They got him last night, but he died valiantly protecting his flock. We had no other losses. The little SOB that got him made it into the coop this time and Lola must have gotten down to defend the flock. It dragged him out of the coop and the only remains are a patch of skin with bloody feathers attached. I am so sad and my heart is sore. I feel so bad for Lola and just hope that he went quickly. I have huge guilt that I could have defended the coop better, so today I am going to spend a lot of time doing coop protection. Whatever got him walked right past a trap and pried out a 6 ft long locust 4x4 post and dug under wire to get into the chicken yard. I have half a mind to sleep in the chicken yard tonight with a gun.
