And Just Like That 5 New Pets Come and Go

Posted by in Brento News, Our Pets | 0 comments

We’ll this week was a bitter sweet. We took in 5 new retired hens that were beyond their laying days, hoping to provide them with a stress free retirement. The chicken coup seemed secure and we only have the one small Poodle living with us now and she’s not even the sligthest bit agressive to the birds. Everything went fine the first two days and the girls seemed to be settling in nicely. Sadly, on Sunday morning we found a fox sized hole ripped through the side of the couple and 4 of the 5 hens were left on the grass inside and around the outside of the coup. The 5th, I’m hoping got away and just left for the woods. What a bummer.

Before the attack I did manage to make a little video of the hens.
