The buffet is open
I went to collect eggs and found that something had gotten in to the chicken coop. The top layer of nesting boxes had two that were broken. I found one dead hen and when I counted it seems that two more are missing. I am not sure it is really hard to count the hens because they keep moving but I counted twice and both times came up two short. This is so frustrating Reina is supposed to keep this from happening. I don't know what went on in the barn but I am worried about the remaining hens. We have lost hundreds of hens to the wildlife and once they know where to get a good hot meal they pretty much clean us out. We will see how things look tomorrow..... just as the girls started laying good Darn it!!!
