My Girls

Many of you will know that I collect chickens. These are "My Girls". Every time I go out to the backyard they come running just in case I have some scraps for them. Yesterday when I went out, no-one came running. I checked in their run and all I found were hundreds of feathers. A rotten fox had got to them in the daytime. I hope they didn't suffer too much.

Not good...we also have foxes and that is one reason I don't have chooks or ducks.
Maybe you can get some more after your holiday.

Christine, what a shocking loss.I hope it was very quick for them as well. Hopefully the fox will now move areas as you have no more hens. So that the new lot will be safe.
