Monday Madness

Well here is the photos of my chicken house and chickens, already something has been at them, and one is missing, I am so sad, not sure what happened, but I checked when I got, and about an hour later I heard the chicken really clucking, one was on my porch, and the others scattered, something had torn into the wire fence and not sure now what. But here is the photo Saturday after I brought them home, I just hope I can keep them safe and the rest do not get harmed. Pray with me for this please. The side right showing is where something tore into, and now that precious little light orange one is missing, One of the barrocks was hurt too, hoping not too bad, I have her separate from the rest. I even named them, Esther, Ruth, Martha and Mary.
It is Martha that is missing.

Thanks for showing the chicken pens. Maybe it will encourage My husband to get busy. I just think the ground is too wet from so much rain.
I tried to get on Barbara's Blessings but for some reason it did not accept aol. We have another e-mail but I like it all on one. Have you noticed any problems with this?

Well I am a happy camper now, we foundo ur missing chicken, and the one who was hurt seems to be doing good, we put her back in with the others and she ate and drank, her one wing seems to be hurt, will watch her closely and we reinforced the pen yet again, not sure how anything could get to them.

It almost sounds like it could be a raccoon. They can get into almost everything. I'm glad you found your chicken!

I'm glad you found your chicken, Dear. I don't know much about chicken pens, but can snakes get through those holes? My daughter and son-in-law have a couple of hurt ducks Mike built a big tall pen for. Thanks for joining my music website. I need to get busy, so I can add some more music.

Hi Barbara,

I am glad to hear you found your chicken. I really like the pen your husband built.
I wish you all the best of luck with your flock.
