Last Thursday October 18th, Rootbeer disappeared. My husband was on vacation, and was working in the yard that day instead of hunting. Everybody was free ranging and enjoying themselves. We're still not sure if my sweet, simple minded pullet just wandered off or if a hawk or opposum got her. We could not find one feather from her on the ground. My poor husband remembers nothing standing out that day either. I was holding out to hope before I mentioned this here, but it is now the 22nd of October and we've had some cold nights. I now know that she won't be back. So, this little thread is dedicated to my sweet lil girl. Rest in peace sweet one.
