    The gate came undone on my pen last night and when I went out to feed all four of my little Frizzle ladies were gone! Their roo is still there and so is everyone else but they are gone. After having so many birds stolen a few months ago I don't know if they were stolen or eaten or what, but it makes me so upset, I loved those little girls

    I hope so, there were no feathers or anything on the ground but with acres of desert around me they stand much of a chance.

    The little darlings are not lost, they are having a broody party in an old giant sized travel kennel that has a blanket over it. They have 6 babies that I know of and a bunch of eggs still.


    ETA: Considering they are hatching already, those girls had been escaping and hiding those eggs for at least a couple of weeks before they jumped ship and vanished.
