Hi all, had chickens for about 6 months now. We live in northern Indiana - it's been cold. They free range all day - they seem to like the snow. We keep loosing chickens - lost 4 in the last 4 weeks. They just dissapear with no signs. Two days ago, my son was giving treats to a wandering bird up by the house. She pecked at it a bit, then disappeared. After searching for a few minutes - I told him to look under the truck (it was about 15 degrees outside, and I figured she went under there to enjoy the warm engine) There she was, only she wasn't standing under the truck, she had climbed onto the undercarriage. Couldn't see her unless we looked up into the underside... Normally, when I start the truck, they all scuffle away - I thought. This one didn't. She stayed right there, even as I drove out to the barn (a good 200' away). If my birds are getting under the truck in the evening and not going into the coop (it's dark, I don't count, sometimes they sleep in the woods around the coop), then stay there when the truck starts in the morning because it's dark, they would go to work with me!!! Anyone ever heard of a stray chicken in town? I'm worried mine are slowly becoming stowaways. Any advice?
