- Two hens to goshawks (I think)
- One was run over on the road outside our place
- One was found simply stone cold dead in the shed
- Another was found dead on the nest but still warm
And then yesterday one simply went missing. When I went to lock the chooks up, only four hens and Russell the rooster showed up. I'm hoping that she has disappeared into the bush to sit on some eggs and will reappear with a clutch of chicks, but based on the track record above it's not all that likely. Shame, it was so nice seeing Russell followed by his six ladies a couple of months ago. Poor missing hen.
