    My friend had 15 blue laced red wyandotte one of her favorite one's was Lacey she was so amazing. One night she was gone the last time she saw her was a couple hours before and she was going into the woods. I think something got her is there anything that really likes chickens that much? Thanks [​IMG]

    Check the area where she was last seen to see if there are any predator foot prints as something must have got her.

    Possibly a fox has snatched her up and killed her someplace else. [​IMG]
