last night, i couldn't find my FR boy. i have two boys and 4 girls that are going on 4-5 months. one of the boys lives with a couple of the girls in the large pen with the rest of the free range flock. the other boy and 6 hens (some sex-link, some FRs) live in the open pasture in a tractor with the bulls. every night i go out to the tractor and close their door and count the seven. last night, i couldn't find the boy. and this boy is much better looking than the other one. it was starting to storm so i put the girls in and figured i'd look for the boy when it got dark, figuring he'd come to the tractor when it got night. but as night fell, he was no where around. i was so sad. couldn't figure out what could have happened to him since i was home all day. well, it rained and poured last night. this morning i went out to go feed the bulls and flipped over the plastic bucket that had flipped over and out pops my boy! poor thing was soaking wet but alive. he ran to the tractor where the feed was and proceeded to gourge. silly big chicken!
