    I have lost two 3-month old chickens in the last week. I am pretty certain it has been an air attack by a bird of prey. Will my girls ever be big enough to free range without worrying about if they will be picked up and flown off, or will they have to live forever in a tractor? This is such a sad pursuit lately!
