We had a predator kill my daughter's black minorca hen last night. She was just deployed to Iraq and I can't bear to tell her right now. Am looking for another black minorca hen/pullet. She'll never take "Arnold's" place (we thought for sure she was a he in the beginning) but would like to add her to our flock. I'm putting hotwire all around the coop this afternoon. Don't know if it's a coon or a fox but I'm going to shock the sh*t out of whatever it is! It also got a silkie hen the other night from the same coop. I HATE predators... I will pay for shipping if I can't find one locally. Nevermind. I went out to her house and it wasn't the black minorca, it was the brown leghorn hen. Still awful, but she was a very skittish hen and Robin wasn't as attached to her.
