My broody hen that just hatched out 4 chicks 2 weeks ago is missing! We had a huge snow storm and they have been snowed in. The netting ripped on top of the pen, but what could have possibly gotten her with no trace at all? No foot prints, no feathers anywhere, nothing! It would be easy to see being that it is all snow out there. I really am just hoping that she flew up and out and is maybe just hiding out somewhere, but why would she leave her babies??
