I don't want to bog down this blog with negativity so I'll just resume this morning's horror in two lines and leave it at that:
Something (we think maybe a weasel?) broke into our big chicken coop last night and massacred five of my most beautiful, sweet laying hens - two were mortally wounded but still alive after having endured horrible pain until we found them at 9:30am this morning - Vegas had to put them down to end their suffering.
The heartbreak and emotional devastation is taking its toll, I don't know how much more of this I can take. It hurts to breathe.
RIP Antoinette, Holly, Gina, Mina and Emma - I'm so, so sorry your lives ended this way :-(
This weekend's torrential rains wash the blood away...
