    So yesterday a branch fell through the top of my chicken run popping the door open and all the chickens disappeared... last night I checked at dusk one was back on the roost and found 1 more just in the woods so I grabbed it and put it back but 4 more are missing still what are the chances they will return today? :(

    They will return if they are still alive, so today more should show up for breakfast. They may be afraid of the run, who can blame them? But should appear today. Good luck! Mary

    So ... Did they come back?

    Look around for places they maybe hiding ... Under bushes ... In the woodshed ... Under the coop ...

    I took a walk around in the woods around it checked under everything in the area no more to be found... I have found a few spots with feathers I am assuming something got the others. very upsetting. only 2 out of the original 6 remain.

    That's too bad ... Still possible one or two are roughing it out in the woods, they maybe really scared and holed up somewhere real good!

    Give them a few more days ... :)
