I doubt there is anything we can do about it but cant find anything online.
Wolves are very hard to keep in. I pulled a wolf out of a shelter once (small town animal control woman had no idea what she was), she was mouthy (liked to chew on your forearms) and dispite the 8 foot chain link she dug out constantly until one day she dug out and didn't come back. I would be very concerned.

I know the three Ameraucana's are doing just fine including the little one who had the pasty butt.
I guess since I have so many chick's thanks to Ksane :) , and turkey and pheasant eggs in the incubator thanks to PoultryandBees :) , One day when everyone is out of the house I'll try my luck again with some Silkies. Maybe I can buy live ones instead of hatching lol. I laugh at my dad because he has to turn so many eggs for 25 days. hehe He asked if it would be to late to get a turner put in there but IDK.
I don't see why you couldn't add the turner long as you work quickly they wouldn't be out for longer than it takes to candle.
Agh, worked my real job on saturday all day so I could stay home on sunday figuring I'd be up all night watching storms, just to get sick saturday night and all day yesterday. I need to get out in the garden today, but I think housework is going to trump that bummer
