RIP Selma and Pickles

10_10_2014_02

Sad news this week, best buddies Selma and Pickles were both killed by what we suspect was a hawk or other large predatory bird. Unfortunately these two trouble makers had gotten into the habit of leaving the coop enclosure and wandering the yard for dust baths and scratching. Pickles had even just started laying eggs on the pile of hay in our carport… and they were apparently attacked while out on the lawn. These two had spunk and it’s very fitting that they were both killed together as they were pretty inseparable in life. We are very saddened by this loss but it serves as another reminder to keep the chickens as safe as possible in the yard, even while in and around the coop. Keep your chickens safe! β™₯β™₯β™₯
