The girls are acting pretty kooky.
Peggy Sue died on Easter, that's 10 days ago. And the girls are still displaying traumatized behavior. They rarely come out into their pen (see below) which faces north bordering the pasture),
but will come out of their coop, through the donkey barn and out into the donkey yard (facing south). While someone is there.
Today was spring clean-up of the coop, well partially at least. The cobweb vacuuming will wait until its a tad warmer.
Normally the girls will wander around outside the coop while I'm cleaning, occasionally inspecting my work. Not today. They preferred to poke around in the barn until I enticed them out into the sunshine with treats.
Last year we lost Dottie to a hawk. In March, same spot in the pasture. That "coincidence" has me grasping for a connection Took the girls less than a week and they were back to normal behavior. Things are very different this time.
