Ok, so long story short, I bought a rooster on Monday and I lost him last night.
I picked up a cute little Barred Rock cockerel on Monday to replace the one I raised (because he was a jerk) Wednesday night I gave him away and put the little fella in with the girls. He was quite scared, but I figured he'd calm down over time. Last night I came home to a hen outside of the run, trying to get back in. The door latch must have dropped, and then after she got out, the door blew closed. My first thought was "Oh no, my rooster is probably gone!"
Sure enough, he was no where to be found. I got up this morning to piles of feathers all around the yard. Poor thing. My guess is a fox, but I'm really not sure. I've set a live trap baited with canned cat food. Hopefully I can catch whatever it is. Right now my girls are at my parents place with my chicks. Not taking any chances.
Gotcha! Resetting the trap tonight.
