Chicken Disaster

Last night a fox wreaked havoc on our poor little flock of chickens. Seriously, it was carnage; dead and half-dead chickens all over our yard. We are amazed that it managed to loosen the screws and get inside. So our chickens just were starting to lay again after molting and we are left with one hen, a rooster, and one chick who isn't yet laying. I am pretty sad about all of them but my favorites especially. The rooster Cornflake, Mama Austrolop, and the Rhode Island Reds. So I think that our chicken season is done until next spring when we build a chicken house that a fox will have to learn to pick locks to enter!
