|Red and 3 other Easter Egger chicks|
I had moved all 20 chicks (hatched in my incubator) to a chicken tractor outside and on about the 3rd or 4th day out there he broke his toe so I brought him and a White Leghorn/Easter Egger cross inside.
|Red when I was trying to fix his toe.|
It turns out that was the night the raccoon chose to attack. I went from 20 chicks to 13 chicks in one night. All Easter Eggers in the tractor except a pure white one where killed. Everyone got moved to my main pen for safety that day. Oh and if your wondering no his toe did not heal properly, he would dunk his foot in water and remove the bandage. But he gets along fine with a broken toe.
So that is the story of my Roosters.
