Don’t Count Your Chickens…

I was sad yesterday, when I went out to check on the chickens and found that two babies had gone missing. They are small enough to slip in and out of their cage so I chalked it up to natural selection. Some predator had gotten a nice little nighttime snack.

Maybe they’d found a warm hiding place underneath the coop floor. Whatever, I am glad to have my full half dozen back and growing their big-girl feathers as fast as they can.

    I know predators must eat, too, but I’m still glad to know that they didn’t get any of your chicks!
