    When you raise animals for whatever reason you know there are going to be loses. Knowing this doesn't really make it any easier when it does happen.

    Lucky the miracle chick which I helped hatch 2 weeks ago disappeared today. I don't know whether Lucky was destined for the freezer or the nest box but now Lucky is destined for neither. [​IMG]

    I too hope Lucky is okay. Was he indoors or out? Young, I know - probably in? What do you suspect might have happened?

    I appreciate all the responses and the hopes but Lucky is not OK. Lucky is gone. Lucky was part of hatch with a broody hen. Lucky and family range during the day and sleep in the coop at night. We went to town and to a friend's to put his chickens away for the night. When we got home and were taking care of our chickens I noticed Lucky was missing from his "family". I don't know how Lucky got separated or what happened. I can speculate a lot but that's all it is, speculation.

    Thank you all
