“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

Well, just want to send a warning to everyone.....the hawks are migrating and are particularly dangerous this time of year. And yes, I write this warning because....Egghead has disappeared. I haven't seen the hawk yet, but I am pretty sure that Egghead met his demise while giving the girls a chance to get to cover. Yesterday afternoon, the hens were all in there coop and Egghead was gone. It is very unusual for the girls to go back to their house on their own as they savor every moment of freedom that they can. However, there they were on the farthest roost from the door all huddled together. Egghead has never left his girls alone, ever. He is an awesome rooster. I am pretty sure a hawk got him and all of nature seems nervous this morning. I have been out looking and will continue looking for the rest of the day for signs of a hawk. Even the rabbits are quiet and pensive. My husband thinks that it happened right behind the goat barn (where the rabbits are located)because he saw chickens running out of there like mad yesterday afternoon and didn't think anything about it. So keep an eye on your chickens and pay attention to the song birds.
