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!
