Photo: Me and our new little chicks 'Peep & Shirley' when we first got them in April 2004.
I'm very sad today. One of our chickens 'Shirley' has gone missing - we think we had a visit from a fox, it was very foggy yesterday and they become quite brave. There is no sign of feathers or any kind of struggle. So Shirley either escaped over the fence and has become lost in the bush or has become dinner for a fox or dog. She was a bit of a crazy girl, a good layer and had quite a personality - I'll miss her. I become very bonded to all the animals, so any loss is difficult for me.
Blessed be little chicken.
