    One of my babies is missing [​IMG] of course it has to be the biggest and healthiest of the bunch. there are no virtually no predator attack possible since nothing enters my yard since my dogs typically roam it they were inside today so the chicks could play. the chick would be about 4 or more weeks old. how far would he wander from the rest? i don't hear a lost call so i have a bad feeling hes gone. no feathers or fluff i should say. no body. is 3 weeks old enough to come back if it escaped the yard?

    uh false alarm. decided it wouldn't hurt to use my chick loving doggie to try and sniff him out. yeah in about 3 minutes she found him. baby had gotten himself wedged and i mean really wedged between two rocks to hide from the sun. he wasn't making a peep

    yeah [​IMG] guess i was over reacting... but i really couldn't find him anywhere and all the rest were smart and went under plant foliage but he just had to choose the rocks lucky for me my dog likes chicks a little too much and found him for me. she even tried to dig him out!
