I had just left the field with the dogs after working a morning shift on iTu.........literally just 2 minutes later my neighbour's mum saw a vixen leap the barb wire fence right in front of traffic on the lane.
At 89, she galloped to the gate to try to help
But the silkie hen, Duster, Bogbrush's brother, one of the crackhead whores, buster the cockerel , a warren and little Eric were killed within seconds.
The little cockerels had obviously tried to protect the main flock of 50 hens
This is the first total field attack I have had in daytime in 6 years and I am mega upset and pissed off
No lectures or platitudes
I couldn't stomach either
