It’s ironic that my last post was about our chickens, because they were both killed last night by a bobcat in our area. We had never heard of the bobcat coming this far from the creek or this close to a major road (which our alley backs up to), but apparently it does and it was able to get in our 6 foot fence, into the chicken run, and into the coop. It is partially our fault for not closing the coop securely. I am very sad to think about their last moments and that we were not able to protect or save them. I wish I had played with them yesterday so I could have said goodbye. The kids are at school right now so I am going to have to tell them that Bocky and JuJu are gone when they get back. I was in the backyard cleaning out the feathers and, uh, blood, and it is so quiet and lonely back there without their little bock-bock-bock sounds. I hope that we can get some new chickens soon and that we can make our yard more secure this time.
One thought on “R.I.P. Bocky and JuJu”
Oh my goodness. That is so sad! Poor little chickens. 🙁
