Another Campine gone . . .

It is always a Campine.  A hawk got a chicken about a month ago, and it was one of my beloved Campines.  This morning, as I was leaving their pen, I saw a dead chicken under some snow.  Of course, it was a Campine.  She didn't make it into the Moop last night.  Maybe I just missed her, or maybe some critter had already gotten her, and I just didn't see the body until this morning.

It always makes me sad.  I think it was one of the remaining nine from last year, because she was pretty big.

I am glad that the only roosters I have are Campines.  I will make sure that some of those white and fertile eggs get hatched next spring.
