Funny .. but not so funny to me this morning.

DH and I went to a very close winery last night for one of their Summer on the Lawn Concerts. Got home late. Forgot to shut the pop door on the chicken coop. I have ZERO chickens this morning.. ZERO. Makes me sick... and angry with myself. I don't think it was a possum, though. Coons or a fox...

So, now I'm the ZERO chicken lady ...

Oh no TG! I'm so sorry that happened! :( Do you think any of them could have escaped and just run off in the area? If so they will make their way back home.

Oh, I'm ok .. it's not like I haven't dealt with predators before. I've heard that a fox will clean you out .. I've had coons before they they will kill 2 or 3 .. There are zero chickens here .. and I've recently seen a fox ... It was so quiet with out Rusty crowing this morning.. *sad*

Anyway, incentive to do the chicken yard like I want .. with hot wire around the bottom and top (to keep predators out) .. and confine the next batch to the yard for the most part. Some of the hens I lost last night, I've had for 3.5 years and they are used to having the run of the place.

We have neighbors now and I am afraid the chickens will find their way over to the neighbors.. especially if they ever get fed once.. so best that they are in a yard anyway ..

So .. fix the yard .. and plan what kind of chickens I want... *sigh*

Ohh no TG....I'm heartbroken for you. :( How many chickens did you have? I am so sorry. Like EMS said, maybe a couple fluttered out of the coop? I had a possum get into my coop once and that's what happened. Several chickens ended up in a Crape Myrtle tree that was hundreds of feet away and they never get into the trees but they were so freaked out, that's where I found them. That is so frustrating. :(

I was down to 1 rooster, 5 hens, 4 chicks. About the time I first saw the fox (two months ago or so) something wiped out about half my chickens early one morning after I opened the pop door.

I was determined not to up my numbers again until I had a secure yard, and/or a LGD with them. I SERIOUSLY want a LGD, but until we have a good enough fence to hold one, that is pretty much out! Lol
