One of the chickens has gone missing and I think a fox has taken her....the biggest shame is that she is the mum of the little babies, Munkee who I put a pic of on earlier :(
The chickens are all free range so it is always a risk but I have to say, we don't lose many, only 3 in 6 years but it is awful each time.
They are all shut up at night so the risk is lessened but I have tried penning them and they hated it.
The babies have ganged up with the 4 little ones that I hand reared and went into the chicken house all on their own tonight and snuggled up together.
The fox tried to get Skeet the guinea fowl too but she got away, minus a huge amount of feathers...one lucky girl.
Strange thing is though, the lack of feathers from Munkee....there is just a chance that she is sitting on some eggs somewhere so we will keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
