    I went down to check on my two Ancona chicks that I have in the basement, to find that both had jumped the brooder. I found one chriping on teh basement floor, but the oter is nowhere to be found. No chirping no anything. What should I do, I have searched in the small room but have found NOTHING.

    I would put out a little food and water out in the middle. Then check every few minutes to see if she is around.

    Or maybe try scrambled egg. We all know how much the chicks love that! [​IMG]
