My better half got the scare today. Turned the ladies out 6:am this morning as usual, but today both the wife and I had to leave to get some bidneth taken care of. Few hours later we pull in the drive and the chickens, that would normally come running to meet my wife's truck, were nowhere to be found. She walked all over the six acres calling and shaking the snack container. Nothing. Finally, sister living next door has spotted them on a ridge a half mile away, working over o large downed tree. Got orders to add a couple more strands to the electric fence on there sides. Hopefully that won't make them more interested in crossing the rode.
