Our First Loses
We lost one of our Red Comets which was already laying and our Mag Pie Duck over night. When I went out to take care of the critters first thing this morning, I noticed the dead body of the hen, but did not notice the duck was missing until later that morning. Do to the fact that the hen was ripped up and only small amounts were eaten, we assume it was a raccoon or one of the feral cats within the park. Maggie's body was missing, we found drag marks where the killer had dug out under the fence and absconded with her. With sadness, Devlin and I cleaned up the mess and buried the hen under one of the trees she enjoyed dirt baths under.
