Six days ago we found a mound of feathers and morned one of our best hens. Today she showed up alive. She's wounded, but healing and if we can keep the rest of the chickens away from her she'll be laying eggs again in the summer. We were so surprised, chickens are so easy to kill but every once in a while one shows an amazing will to live. So we give thanks to the chicken god and celebrate her life.

It turned out to be a neighbor's dog, we know because yesterday he struck again and we caught him at it. He's going to be relocated ASAP in the mean time he's tied up. I don't know where she went, we searched and found a few more feathers in other places.
