But it's true...
We've lost another chicken.
But we honestly don't know how.
Last Thursday night Ryan counted the chickens before closing up the coop for the night.
Not to be alarmed, Ryan recounted. Eight again. A spastic Red was missing.
He looked around outside briefly before he had to leave. No sign of the auburn
Well...fast-forward to Saturday. I noticed an abnormal number of auburn feathers on the east side of our house. The setting was sinister. Surely this was the scene of the crime. But besides the feathers, no other evidence has been found. (This was like CSI: Sutter).
We have our suspicions...and surprisingly they don't include our dog.
My guess is a hawk because we believe it happened during the day and I don't think a coyote or fox would have ventured so close to the house where the fearsome Casey was posted nearby.
Anyone else have ideas about a possible cunning daytime predator?
