|My original 6 chickens 3 years ago|
As if life were stressful enough for me these days,
I lost the last two hens from my original 6 chicks.
And I lost them during my son's family birthday party.
It was definitely a downer.
Seems a fox got my Buff Orpington Bertha down by the barn.
The other 4 older hens scattered toward the house.
Two went to the coop,
Martha Stewart, my Araucana, ran toward the house.
The fox got her next to our deck.
So I'm down 2 layers
until the other pullets get older
(not till August/September time frame)
and I won't have any more green eggs.

Now the remaining chickens are locked up.
Penny is still at my house,
though I'm growing tired of having her there
in such tight quarters.
I guess there will be more chickens
since we put all that money and time into making the coop bigger.
But honestly, with everything going on, I don't know if I have the heart to bother with more.
