Someone help! 6 of my chickens r missing.. no sign anywhere on my 5 acres of pretty much open land...there r a few little wooded areas that they like to go to to rest or scratch..they were still around at about 7 last night...went to check on everyone to make sure they were roosting and everybody was in place around 11... no chickens. I had 2 of my arucanas go missing last week.. now my 2 barred cochin roos, 2 barred rock hens, and the last 2 arucana hens all gone.. I have RIR's and austrolorps as well these guys roost separately from the group thats missing...very strange..they do all free range together..but they stay separate from each other once in a blue moon the rir's roos will pick on the group thats missing... i am out of ideas about happened to them.. we have 2 pomeranians that will bark at everything and it seems like whatever happened, happened during daylight hours for some reason.. I did find a few feathers on the other side of fence in neighbors yard...i could tell they were from one of my cochin roos..by the coloring...would they have just wandered off?
