And then there were five.
In my last chicken update, I told you about Redneck being the superstar and hatching out seven chicks.
A few days ago, I closed the coop for the evening and Redneck had seven chicks … the next morning, she had only four chicks.
Where’d three chicks go?
What happened to them?
Did one of the other chickens decide they didn’t like all the little chicks around?
Did the cat sneak into the chicken coop?
Did one of the magpieswho likes to visit the chick scratch snatch a chick or three?
It’s a mystery. Good thing I didn’t count my chickens while they were still only little baby chicks.
P.S. Thelma (or Louise) still has her one chick, so the total number of chicks is now five (from the original 24 fertilized eggs). See Part 1 herefor the original story.
