So, you may have noticed a small absence of mine. Let's just say what could go wrong did in so many ways. The largest tragedy IMO was the loss of 3 hens, and our rooster. Our last hen which is named "Spam" lived by hiding while what we suspect was a raccoon literally ripping apart the wood of the chicken tractor to get at my chooks. Talk about a devastating day. So, Spam is in rehab, doing nicely. Wounds treated, egg breaking phase passed and she lived. However she is totally alone now. How important is it that I get her companions prior to next spring when I can get chicks readily?
