|starting point for the day.|
Zeke is going to be no use when it comes to the alpacas. He is an attractant to them. They all bum rush the fence in an attempt to get at him so they can stomp on him. He would be okay with a few of them but eight of them and one of him are not good odds even for the Zekemeister!
I had another chicken die today. It is so frustrating to walk in the coop and find another dead chicken. It occurred to me that the only chickens dying are my buff orpingtons that are 7 months old. No one else is sick or dying. It is very strange. Annmarie pointed out that they are eating in a different place than the other chickens. We are watching them all and I only have one or two still alive. I lost another chick yesterday. I have 2 out of 12 still alive. This is not a very good survival ratio.
