Today is a sad day here at the homestead. I was greeted by a most unpleasant sight this morning in the chicken coop.
It seems it was not as predator proof as we had thought.
One dead and partially eaten.
One in serious condition.
Today was the day that we had to do "the deed".
If there is a chicken heaven, these girls deserve it.
We, as homesteader's are not feeling too good about ourselves. I know it is a lesson to learn, and we honestly still can't figure it out totally, but, it was at the expense of a life.
I didn't hear a thing.
We've re-checked everything and have added some other measures for making the coop more secure for the remaining three girls left. Let's hope it's enough.
What a sad, sad day....
