Something burrowed into the chicken pen last night. My two hens are no more. When I walked out in the afternoon to feed the chickens I began to see Guinea feathers all over the place. As I got closer, I could see the Guineas were OK, a bit beat up, but OK. The big Rooster was there, but my two hens were nowhere to be seen. Then I saw the hole on the backside of the pen where a predator had dug its way in. As I began to expand my circle of search, I found the one of the hen's body, deheaded and disembowels. I only found feathers of the second about 50 yards away. I am gonna miss my two girls. They rewarded my feedings with many eggs over the last 2 years.
