Chicken chicks hatched: 6

So, I think I've found the culprit. Last night before I locked the chickens up, a hawk swooped down and tried to take off with a chick. Moose took off after it like a streak of lightening and luckily the hawk dropped the chick. She has puncture wounds under her wing and is being isolated right now, hopefully she will be ok. She's the last living Easter Egger and I want my blue eggs, dangit! The little ones will be confined to the run until they get a bit more size on them. They'll hate it, but they'll live.
The picture is where they ran to hide, I'm glad I haven't mowed the garden plot lately.

I'm having terrible luck with this last batch of chicks. Started with 14 chicks and 3 ducklings. All 3 ducks are in fact drakes and won't be here much longer. From the original 14 chicks I have 7 left, lost 5 in the last 2 days to a predator that may or may not be one of my pets. 😒

Out picking more blackberries.

Bill decided he wanted to play in the bushes (get closer to the chickens), so I took the opportunity for a photo shoot.

All of the littles finally came out of the coop on their own. It has been a couple of week of chasing them around the coop and making them go out. That got old fast!

Trying to coax the littles out of the coop with some cauliflower. The ducks took the bait! They are too big to go up and down the little ramp, I have to lift them in and out until I get some steps made for them.

The littles have moved into the coop and Ethel isn't happy about it! 😂
