And then there were three....

Bessy, Logan's hen chick, got out of her box this morning. Didn't stand a chance with the hunter cats around.

And then there were three.

We are all very sad around here this morning.

I knew I couldn't get tiny babies again because the older chickens would peck them to death attempting to get the pecking order established again. So I ran to Dell's with Logan and asked if they had chicks still that were from our batch.

They had exactly two left... And I got them both. We are naming them Bessy 2 and Betty.

I also bought a 1x1inch hog fence metal top for the brooder box. Not chickens out, no cats in.

Lets just hope that they can last another 5 wks until they can be outside. Then I think they will be fine... but until they are too big for the cats to prey on.........
