Two Chickens Down!

Sadly two of our chickens have lost their lives recently.  A pile of feathers scattered around the olive trees was all that was left of them.  Who knows what creature had got hold of them unexpectedly?  We are now reduced to 4 hens and Freddy. 

None of the eggs produced any baby chicks recently and we have learned from this experience!  Next time we will place the broody hen in a separate area, away from the other hens.  We live and learn!
