    I got home from work, went out to gather my eggs, I looked over at the pen with the youngens in it and seen some chickens walking around. Looked at the tweener pen , it was empty. 17 chicks were on the loose, for how long I don't know. Had a time catching them but finally succeeded. Whew. Thank God no predators came around.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Had the same thing happen just this evening! Mine free range and I could see all the big hens but none of the little guys. Looked everywhere...started to panic...found the little boogers under my pepper plants all lying down and asleep. [​IMG]
