a sad loss

Our small favourite little chicken, Sarah, is gone. When we returned home from my time away in Minnesota, we found her poor little chick, Heidi Kathryn, dead on the ground in the chicken yard and a few of Sarah's feathers scattered around. Other than that, there is no sign of her. My poor little love. I don't know if the chick got out of the hen house while searching for her mama or if Sarah went out into the yard to save her chick but all I can figure is that maybe a hawk or an owl got her....and it wasn't Fuckles this time, he was with my sister.
