    Chris challenges my most basic assumptions

When I was a kid, we had two ducks, Curious and George.  One morning I woke up to find a trail of feathers (the color of Curious’s) leading to the blackberry bushes.  I never did see Curious again.  I always assumed it might have been a skunk because they lived in the blackberry patch.  But now that I think about it, Chris is right . . . it was very likely a larger predator.  A fox or a cougar maybe.

It wasn’t a large predator called ‘Henry’ by any chance… was it? Wink

we had ducks for awhile and we would find them with their heads gone and most of the blood as well.

a neighbor said it was a skunk. we lost all of them the same way. we never got any more. sure liked the eggs.

No, Henry is a snake, and I don’t think they have anacondas doing this.

We found a bunch of our chickens dead one morning; certain parts like heads had just disapeared.  Never knew why.  Another time our neighbor’s dog got caught red handed when it got trapped inside the coop.

I’ll be ordering new chicks soon for next spring.
