Feed the Chickens


RIP Chickens

I came home last Thursday night to find my dog dining on a chicken.  When I checked the run, he had killed all but three chickens.  We bought 18 chicks originally, lost one at a couple weeks old, and had 17 nearly full grown hens.

This was by far the worst homesteading experience I've had thus far.  We'll be ordering more chicks online this time but that sets up back three months.  Fortunately we still have three chickens so we'll have fresh eggs but we won't have any extra to sell.
