Well, unfortunately Rocky didnt arrive in time. While I was out today bringing him to the farm where he is to be trained further in the duties of Guard Dog Life, we had another fox attack. This time at least 20 birds were killed. Electronetting isnt working. The fox are digging under the perimeter fencing and then simply going right through the electronetting. Its probably not hot enough. So, we are down to about 50% of the birds we started with as chicks. Super. There were some really nice birds that were killed. Good 6 to 7 pound birds.
So, I will go through our pre-orders and I will contact you today or tomorrow if we have birds for you. It will be on a first come basis, meaning the oldest orders will get filled first. Im completely sorry to everyone that Im going to have to disappoint about their order. This really hurts me because not only am I losing the birds Ive worked very hard to raise, less than a week before processing, but Im going to have to disappoint friends and customers that Ive worked hard to please. The only good thing is that I didnt accept any deposits or partial payments for the birds. So at least we dont have to worry about anyone complaining about that. Phew.
I guess I feel better knowing that Rocky is here now. I just wish I had him a few weeks ago.
