    this year has been the awfullest year for the chickens. we went from 60 to 20 chickens thanks to coyotes and hawks--makes me so fustrated! some of my favorite chickens got killed and it made me sad.[​IMG]. i had one barred rock left and it got killed. it was one of my favorites. at least we are getting 19 more chickens in a week. hope they dont get killed lol!
