Saving The Chickens Again

A quick report before I dash off to the feed store for more netting and some sort of small fencing so the new 6 chicks cant's get through the little holes. We have two new birds of prey aggressively trying to get our chickens and the babies...At first we thought the huge falcon was after the rabbits that come in, but they just used that as a ploy! As you can see the rooster is pleading with me to do something because they are all stuck in that small area until I can secure the large covered run. This morning right before Mr. B. left out for the weekend we saw a yet to be unidentified hawk/falcon ? trying to get through an open spot in the side of the netting....I must run. Here are some pics of the chicks.






The whole group having to hang together...Not happy.

The chicks are sweet:) I think you are the smart one... get a real mama hen to do all the work. Hope things get patched up soon! Never a dull moment...

Thanks for stopping by and giving me advice and for your prayers. I did go to the ER. They did a brain scan, it was negative. I had three shots. They think it's some sort of migraines but I will look into the other thanks. ((((HUGS))))

Oh dear, I hope you have had a chance to remedy the situation. We have had raccoons again and I need to reinforce some areas right quick!
Baby chicks are so sweet!
