I am so sad this morning. I went out to let my free range chickens out of the barn and noticed in the side yard there lay my 5 month old pullet. Looked as if someone or something had chopped off her head, that was the only thing missing and she didn't have any chew marks on her that I could see. I called her "Fancy Pants" cause the feathers on her butt were all curly, looked like she had on fancy bloomers. I didn't notice any missing last night when I close them in.. but it was kinda dark. I then went back to check the rest of my brood and notcied my grey silkie is nowhere to be seen either. A few days ago I had a white leghorn come up missing. I am so sad and frustrated. Here is a picture of her about a month ago while she was still in the baby pen. I just took her out of the baby pen about a day after that picture was taken. She had grown a considerable amount and was the biggest one of my flock, with the exception of one rooster.
