Adult chickens gone :(

Posted by Tiago Amado Simões over 10 years ago

Our two adult chickens and their rooster were eaten by wild animals. Baby chicks are ok.

Since adult chickens attack baby chicks that are not theirs, I had to separate them into a new place. Unfortunately, the new place was not as secure as the old one, and "something" (probably Egyptian Mongoose, known here as Saca-rabos) maybe more than one, managed to catch them. The rooster's feathers were all over and away from the chicken pen, so he probably put up a reasonable fight, but the feathers of the chickens were all together in the same place.

The old place is very solidly fenced, and has a wire mesh roof, so no predator can get in and no chicken can get out (they did that before I had the roof, and I lost two other chickens because of that). The mother-hen that was hatching my babies has been returned to her previous owner, my front neighbour, and I am now the proud caretaker of five healthy "teenage" chicks :)
