I went out the other evening to shut the gate to the run for the night and noticed after the head count, I was missing one of my Buff O girls! Everyone else was in the pen, it was later than usual for the nightly shutdown, so I was surprised everyone wasn't inside. I looked all around the house where they usually hang out...nothing! I looked in the horse pasture to see if one of the horses might have stepped on her...nothing. I called and called...nothing. In the garage, under the shrubs, in the trees...I couldn't find that hen anywhere. I finally accepted the sad reality that I had probably lost a hen to some predator. I had plans for the evening so I went on and left. Later, I texted my son and told him something had gotten one of the hens. He texted back and said that when he got home, she was sitting outside the run gate! He opened it up and let her in, so I still have 12 chickens...Yaay! I don't know where this little hussy was! She is so light colored, very easy to see...I don't know how I missed her!
