Part 2 of "Sad Day"

So... after hours of no chickens being seen or heard from, slowly they started showing up...who knows where they escaped to, but so far 6 have made their way back. One that I thought was dead, came back to life...although we'll see if she makes it... and the rooster (whose feathers were everywhere and I was certain had been drug off into the field) actually made it...barely... he has 1, literally 1, tail feather left, a large gouge out of his back and is missing two claws... he definately fought for his ladies lives! What a guy!... So we are not completely wiped out. Broody Blackie and 4 others are still missing... I talked to the owner of the dog... that didn't go super well... but we'll see... I just hope we don't have to shoot her dog...
We had a funeral tonight for the dead ones...Michael dug a hole and Elle requested we sing Amazing Grace, BaBa Black Sheep and Twinkle Little Star... so we did...


  1. oh Sara, I am so sorry about your chickens. I will be praying that that dog stays away.

  2. I am so sorry about your horrible chicken luck. That is so discouraging and maddening. I wish I could say something to make you feel better. :)
