    We had some family over for dinner last night, let the hens out for free range time, and decided to let a few of the chicks out for a bit too as my hubby's grandma was over and used to have chickens back in the day thought she'd get a kick out of watching them. I was in and out making dinner, chatting etc,..I took a quick survey and noticed "Bo" my light brahma baby was gone. The other babies were just carrying on like normal. We spent hours looking for her, but didn't hear her peeping like crazy or anything. I think she must have gotten too close to a rat hole and he grabbed her. After my good cry over it was done, I am planning an attack. I will get revenge.

    Someone posted something like this before and found the chick stuck between some wood in their yard. Chicks get themselves stuck. I hope you find her.
