    Iwent out last night to put my babies in their pen and my son's 2 year old BPR was nowhere to be found, not in the cedar tree that she likes, and I went out this morning and she's still isn't there. She was just getting ready to lay again(after almost a year) and we were sooo excited. I live on 4 acres and looks like I get to go on a hike to find her which I hope I do because my kids are going to be heartbroken:( Wish me luck please and prayers too. [​IMG] Happy Ending!

    I do but I don't think he is old enough to do that to her he is only 14 weeks but that is what I was thinking. Last year she sat on 18 eggs with no rooster! The kids and I are gonna go hunting in a bit.

    I bet she's around if she was getting ready to lay. We had one once dissapear for two months! No chicks with her when she came back, but I'm betting she was broody and just wouldn't give up on those eggs.
