Bad Year For Chickens

This morning I saw a sparrow carrying off a feather and thought "Ahhh, how sweet. She is using a feather for her nest." I then go to bring out water for 3.2 only to find feathers everywhere.

Two words - Owl Attack!

Sigh... It is my fault for not bring her crate in last night but I thought she had enough cover under her favorite bush. I was wrong. Very, very, very wrong.
That poor chicken. First she gets scalped and now this. Little Man cried for awhile and seems to be over it. This was a very bad year for baby chicks at my house. I need to stop writing this post and get outside and clean up the rest of the feathers.  Hopefully I will have more cheerful chicken posts in the near future!
