Cycles

I lost many chicks this week to a rat or weasel that gnawed into a brooder. This morning I found a new clutch of Antlerborns dancing in the dappled sunlight. This is all a cycle, a story that never ends. Animals come, animals go. Including all of us.

It is fustrating to lose animals, but this surprise is very good!

Love that turkey fluff-out thing the new mamas do. Like, wanna mess with my chicks? Bring it, b*tch.

I don't know about the tenacity of weasels, but maybe stapling hardware cloth around the brooder could prevent chewing? Or would they just chew through it? Congrats on the new brood!! They're so cute. I'd love to have some Antlerborns, if I ever magically end up in Veryork someday. :)
