I picked up 5 Ameraucana today I'll post pics soon. After I got my chickens home one ran off in the grass I went to grab him and he ran straight into this giant hole under my cedar tree. Desperately, I called him peeping and listening every few hours, after about 4 hours I tried running some water through another hole helping to scare him out. I had a flashlight aimed in the hole for hours hoping he could see the light and run back. I was giving up all hope after about 6 or so hours. Then I grabbed my husbands fishtape and decided to shove that in the hole. After I got it in there about 10 feet jiggiling it around. Out pops a chicken He followed the wire out and boy he was happy to see me poor thing. What a relief.
