Sad news to report... we lost all 4 of our chickens. In a brazen attack by a raccoon(s) at night, the coon killed all our chickens. The coon broke into the chicken yard and snatched them. We are really bummed. The chickens have become a fixture around the yard and entertaining gardening companions, as they were always curious what was happening. When Zachary would work out in the wood shop, they would wander in and take sawdust baths. We were thinking of getting a few more, before the attack, to add to our flock. But now before we get chickens again, we will be re-enforcing the chicken fence and creating a safer environment in the coop to try not let this happen again. It is amazing how attached you get to them. A hard lesson learned.
