I think a coyote ate Beautiful :(


So this year I've lost all 8 of the chicks that Mama hen hatched, I think one of the pullets has disappeared, and today I found LOTS of feathers in the orchard, and the only hen we couldn't account for was Beautiful, who's usually clucking around under my feet :( Not a good year!

As of tonight I have:

11 March chicks (10 girls and a boy)
5 Blue/Gold Hens
4 Buff O Hens
1 Splash Hen

Tragic!! So sorry. :(

Buffies have the fluffiest bums, don't you think?

They are so fluffy! Poor Beautiful, she was super sweet, like yours are. I hope one of the new chickies ends up with a similar personality!
