My last 5 chickens bit the dust from a bear attack in the early Spring this year. I had 1 rooster, 4 hens. I was able to incubate 11 eggs out of their last week (of life) and ended up with 1 rooster and 2 hens that I have spent all Summer raising and nurturing. The new hens just started laying this week (I literally collected the 1st 2 eggs this week!). I locked the new group up at 6:30 this evening and when I went out out 9pm to have a smoke on the deck... the coop was tipped over, I re-righted it and took inventory ... 1 hen is missing (hoping she is hiding out in the woods or under the deck to rejoin them tomorrow). F&^king bears SUCK!. I now have my M&P 40 ready to go ... I DO NOT care about ANY Game Commission rules. I will protect my flock. I put too much work (and money) into my birds to have Yogi & boo-boo come have a picnic at my expense. It's my property and I will not sit back and watch it be stolen/eaten by wildlife because of stupid rules (tired of the Government telling me how to live). By the way ... bear meat tastes like pork ... very good slow cooked (think of Hawaiian pig roasts, that's bear meat).
