The completion of our new super cooper coop is just in the nick of time. This last month has marked the first clear case of predation... well probable predation... we've encountered on Maggie's Farm.
At any rate, we've taken the typical precautions: kept an eye on Maggie (Notice the chain and guilty look in the photo). We've kept a light on in the barn, an eye on the skies. But the durn chicks keep disappearing. It's quite disheartening. Yesterday, it was Amelia, the beautiful little buff Minorca... without a trace.
