Stella was attacked on Sunday while I was at the grocery store. We knew something was up when she didn't make it home to the coop that night.
Then, this morning, I saw the clumps of wet feathers behind the compost bins. I thought that a cat might have caught her and dragged her over the fence, but if that were the case, there would probably be more feathers in my yard. I think Stella got into my next door neighbor's yard and couldn't get back over the fence. Then something cornered her there - maybe a coyote or a hawk.
Poor Stella. She had just started to lay.
As for Goldi and Leah, they're getting their wings clipped today.
