It has been so windy and cold the past few days, Spring time in southern Colorado (fun fun fun). We did get a little skiff of snow the other night but it was gone by morning, maybe it will help hold down the dust some.
Went out to feed the chickens the other day and something, still not sure what had gotten into the pen and killed 9 of them and the turkey. The dogs had been doing a lot of barking that night, I even got up once to see if I could see what they were barking at but didn't see anything, guess I should of looked a little harder.
A couple months ago something got in and got 7 of them, we found and fixed a hole in the fence. A friend knew some one getting rid of some, so we were able to get a few more. So now with having lost such a large amount two different times not sure what we are going to do, get more, wait, put them in a different place, or rebuild a new pen.I am a little upset about this, in over 15 years of having chickens in that spot this hasn't ever happened before. I do still have the rooster and 4 chickens left. Have thought about incubating our own eggs, Travis has an incubator we could use or maybe I could talk him into doing it :).
Have a great Day.
