32. Sad News...

We lost two this week!
Our Buff-Laced Polish "Lucille" was attacked in the early evening by a predator. Dottie, our Wyandotte rooster came to her rescue, put up a great fight, but lost his life due to terrible injuries sustained. We are sooooooo sad!!

However, on a fluke we decided to ask around other backyard chicken keepers and found an incubator... So, we popped in a dozen choice eggs and in three weeks might have some new chicks!

I am very sorry about what happened to Lucille and Dottie. It's amazing how these animals look out for each other. Thumbs up for brave Dottie! Thank you for sharing this experience. Hope you'd get back on your feet raising new ones soon.
