It's that time of year and around here there is more excitement than if I said the circus was coming to town. I drove by the feed store Sunday and saw the sign and had to stop. "What kind are you getting," I asked? "When does the delivery arrive?" I can hardly wait to bring those little darlings home.
|What happened here?|
In December 2010 a mother bear and her two yearling cubs broke into our hen house and killed our entire flock of 15 birds in one night. When three bears decide to do something believe me when I tell you there is nothing short of full out heavy artillery that is going to stop them. My dogs were frantic and had to be restrained so that they would not be hurt. The bears went through two 7 foot fences and tore out the wall of the hen house to get to the hens.
