Hi, At present we have 78 birds. 68 of them were hatched out this season. We let them roam during the day, and have had no problems that we are aware of but.... The other day I was coming in from outside and noticed an overturned dish basin moving. My first thought was "rat" so imagine my surprise when I lifted it to find one of our elder hatchlings underneath! Apparently, she got under it then could not get back out. She had to have been there for at least a couple of days. I felt so awful! I brought her in, put her in a nice fresh box with plenty of food and water. I broke out the hair dryer and spent an hour or so drying her out and getting her warm. She's picked right up and seems to be doing very well. But! I now have a new shadow. She is never more than a couple of feet away from me and spends most of her time sitting on my shoulder or lap. In fact she is asleep on my shoulder as I type. I feel really awful about the trauma she's suffered. The offending basin is now removed from the area and this should not happen again. I think how lucky we both are that she moved at just the right time for me to see it. While I'd rather she were still a 'real' chicken, having a cuddle junkie come out of said trauma is, at least, a silver lining.
