We lost a bird today And naturally, it was one of the three that the girls named and decided were pets. She was a crested polish and I suspect she never saw it coming. A falcon got her. My roo, according to DH, screamed at it and attacked the falcon who turned on the roo. DH found the falcon under a tree eating the first bird and thought roo was a goner. He rounded up the flock and put them in the coop and called me to say that roo and Midnight were gone. But, then he called me back and said he thought roo was hiding so he got me to call the rooster - yes I am serious! over the phone! So I call the rooster and he runs out to the phone!! Dh was hysterical laughing and sat waiting with the roo until I got home. So, we lost a bird and the kids are upset. No more polishes!
