Goodbye Betsy McGoo

Yesterday the unthinkable happened. I went out to lock up the chickens and found Betsy's lifeless body in the paws of a raccoon. I scared off the raccoon (screamed, shouted obscenities and threw anything I could at it) and gathered up the remains. She is now buried near Sibella in the flower and herb garden. She was a very good chicken.

That is one of the worst thing to happen to a hen. I'm sorry you lost your girl. As a kid I went through this many times. So so sad. Hugs to you.
