X5 on the sick feeling. Still hoping for a miracle, however unlikely.

I would be sick if I lost one of the Smith birds, but if I lost the only one...

Hopefully she shows up. One time, I had a hen get out of the yard and ended up 4-5 houses away in a neighbors back yard. I ended up going and picking her up at about 10 oclock at night when I got home from work. Hopefully she's just on a play date at a neighbors house.

It was pouring here and cloudy as can be, that's why I didn't even think hawk. How did you find it that far away? I'm seriously thinking of putting out missing chicken posters in the hood.

Same thing happened here... ducks were in our yard right in front of our porch just at dusk, not dark... went inside for 5 mins, came back out and 1 duck was gone the others were huddled against the porch terrified... no sounds no feathers... that's an owl... we found the remains a few days later under a tree in the property across from us... owls come out just before dark to scout and hunt...

Very sorry and do hope she is just hiding, but it sounds just like what an owl would do... hit.gifhugs.gif

I looked everywhere I thought an owl would eat a meal and nothing yet. Still could have been an owl though, so far that is my best guess.

It is partially my fault because I should have bought more than one pullet. What was I thinking!?

You were thinking how much you paid for one gig.gif
I'd definitely put out a missing chicken report, with reward. I know what I'd pay for one of mine.
Is there any chance she has a hidden nest and is broody?

I had a friend call me asking me if I was missing a chicken. I would at least knock on some neighbors doors, if not put up a poster.

She is probably still under a year probably and showed no sign of being broody. I wish she were, that would give me hope.

I made a poster. Already knocked on the close neighbor doors but I will add a reward line to the poster and knock on more doors. 

 

Thanks guys!

Thanks man. I'm glad I got the littles still. Some of them are about two months old.
