Picalily and Betty are mommies.....again

Both Picalily and Betty both had one chick each. Pically hatched a Salmon Faverolle chick and Betty hatched a Polish. Poor Winky was due to have her chicks while we were on vacation. When we got back there were empty egg shells, but no chicks. We also were missing a few older chicks and there were a lot of feathers in various piles, I had a sinking feeling that a predator had been visiting while we were gone. Sure enough, Buck put a fox trap out and caught a opposum. Poor Winky is still wandering around clucking for her chicks that are gone. That's just part of living out in the country. I have a feeling we'll be seeing Winky go broody again. I have to get a pic of Betty, but here's one of Picalily.
