Mean Ol’ Critters

We’ve lost half our chickens in the last few days. Kevin keeps finding dead ones in their run, in the Martin (a corn crib we let them into during the day), and in their new and old pen. Then this morning, we found two more, IN THEIR HOUSE! Whatever it is that is attacking them is fairly clever and pretty small. We thought we had their house all locked up.

We have little gates everywhere that are closed, their main pen has wire all over the top of it… At this rate, we’re going to have to start buying eggs at the store. Ick.

  1. Yikes! I’d be livid. It’s so much work to get them old enough to fare on their own…and then to have something get them. I’m so sorry! I hope you figure out how to stop this.

    I mentioned to my dh that maybe stringing a hot wire around the perimeter of the coop would be a good idea. Do you think something is digging under? That’s crazy that it’s finding a way in. Could be a rat, but you’re finding whole chickens, right?

    So sorry!
