Apparently a bird must die first week of March

My favorite hen got attacked and died yesterday, almost two years to the day of Floppy getting attacked.  I didn’t know country dogs kept calendars and to do lists…hit up the chicken yard and kill owners favorite bird.

Thankful Boomer put up the supplemental fence, not sure how she got out of there but she did.

I inspectedIMG_8759 the fence, and we have lots of damage from yesterday.

IMG_8754We are in negotiations now to decide if we are going to hold off on new birds.  I am in the mindset that I won’t have birds if we have to keep them cooped up and in a pen ALL THE TIME.  Boomer wants to make sure they stay safe and that means limiting them to a small space.
