One of my wee Scots Dumpy chickens was killed  today - evidence looks like a cat got into the house somehow. Am down to 6 now. It's a chance you take on keeping poultry, I know, but when you watch them hatch on your dining room table and take care of them from little feathered scraps to good strong and healthy 6 week old chickens it hurts. There's a bit more to the story that I'm not going to divulge here, suffice to say that from now on I will stand my ground and trust my instincts - every time. Hardest lesson to learn this time, but this was the final straw.

Been there - it is indeed a very hard lesson to learn. Sorry you've had to learn it too.
