Well, this morning when I went to let the chooks out (chickens) I have five hens, one rooster and four baby chickens that no longer looked like chicks but like small chickens. Still to young to know if they were male or female to my untrained eye.
I was on the phone at about 8.30AM and my chickens were in the front yard doing their chicken thing. While talking, I noticed the chickens starting to run, and I see something gray behind them. I get up to take a better look and there is a COYOTE chasing my chickens! I run to the front door and the coyote darts back into the woods. The chickens all are clucking and making a fuss about their near death experience and that's when I noticed that my four baby chickens are missing.
I walked around to see if I could find them and no such luck. I went to church hoping that maybe they were just hiding and when I got home they would be there. I'm home now and have looked and looked, no such luck. Can't find them. I have all my adult chickens and I'm getting more chickens today from the goat lady. She doesn't want hers anymore. She doesn't have a way to keep them over winter.
I hope that the coyote gets a chicken bone stuck in it's throat.
