Re: RIP Miss Muffet

She was a normal - sized hybrid, wasn’t she? So about 2-3 kilos maybe? A badger might do this but would have had to dig its way up in under the panels, and presumably no sign of this?

Re: RIP Miss Muffet

Oh Tweetipie, I’m so very sorry to read this. What a horrible thing to find. It’s bad enough when they go downhill and die gently, but an attack like this is much, much worse to bear. I’m glad whatever it was, only took one of them. Sending hugs .... I would hazard a guess at fox - I’m afraid that y...

Re: The old virus overcomes me.

I think you’re right about bullies being stressed, Rick - whether they’re chickens or people! It’s those who are uncertain about their position in their society who have to take it out on others. Which is why challenging them in a non-violent, calm and assertive way, or laughter, can pop their bubbl...

Re: The old virus overcomes me.

The plot thickens! Nice surprise today. First little blue egg from Piper. Also strange broken shell, inside wet and eaten out, presumably from Amber, the scatty Skyline, as the egg Ash laid first thing today had been removed and eaten for breakfast by us! Ash roosts in the coop and always lays first...

Ash only bullies disabled Willow, who will always be the bottom of the pecking order for reasons of size, mobility and non-assertive temperament. The two in the middle ...
