I just went outside to give the girls some fresh food and water and found my youngest easter egger gone...they're were feathers everywhere but she was no where to be seen. We have a plum tree in the run and 2 plums were on the ground and still green. So whatever got her must of taken her up the tree and knocked down the fruit. It was probably a raccon or possum. I'm so ticked off though. I wanted to put an automatic door on the coop and my DH thought that was stupid since we lived in a neighborhood....Our house is on the corner and its just woods behind our house...Our GSD has killed many possums and coons in our little yard...Anyways, he didn't want a door on the coop or a cover on the run bc it would look 'tacky'. Ugh, I'm so mad! I called him and told him the news but he was headed to work and didn't really care. Looks like I'm going to have to build a door today and just have HIM deal with it. I can't believe one of my favorite little puffy cheeks are gone... now we only have three...
