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.
We are down to 4 birds.
Thankful Boomer put up the supplemental fence, not sure how she got out of there but she did.
Another day with a yard fill of feathers.
I inspected the fence, and we have lots of damage from yesterday.
We 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.
we have had a total of 18 hens and 6 meat birds
6 the first year
2 donated from Brent and Anna
6 the next year (plus 6 meat birds)
4 last year
We are down to 4 One of the donated birds, 1 from our batch the 2nd year, and 2 left from last year.
