    for those of u on my white showgirl egg lists for spring, i will not be able to fill ur orders for them.[​IMG] we had a preditor attack last night that whiped out all of our white showgirl hens, pullets and youngsters we had for spring breeding. [​IMG] all i have left of them is the showgirl roosters that where in the with the silkie girls. so we will be starting our whites over again. i'm so heart broken i am beside myself. i still have the 2 silkie roos who where in with the girls they r all that survided the attack on their pen. i still have the other colors of showgirls they r fine and so r the others. i wanted to make sure u all knew i'd not be able to do eggs for them so u had time to find someone else to get ur white showgirls from. i'll not be able to do eggs for them again till fall or next spring since we will be hatching them all for us to build our stock back up.

    i'm very sorry,

    thank you so much, i think i'm doing enough crying for both of us. we believe it was a coon, mink or weasel but not for sure yet. it was ripping them through the pen, which is odd it is 4ft off the ground and we've never had anything get to them. after the kid's go to the doctors we will be scouting to see if we can find what caused it and to hopefully find the rest of the bodies and will be setting traps.

    Quote:Wow! I sure hope you can discover what got them, and set some traps. I certainly don't want to think of that beast coming back for more!!!

    Oh my!! I am a showgirl owner that always tunes in to when you discuss the breed on the forum. Your love of your showgirls always shine through your words. I am so sorry for your loss and setback. I will be watching to see when you catch the culprit...and I hope you feel more at ease when you do! Claudia
