I just got back in from wandering my property to find my 4 month old Blue Silkie, Neela. I can't find her anywhere!!! Her best buddy Keira (my 4 month old Black Silkie from the same breeder) was all snuggled up to the Barred Rock chicks when I went out to put all the girls in for the night, but Neela wasn't there . . . I just got Neela and Keira on Thursday and immediately fell in love. I feel so irresponsible! We let the chickens free-range in our small, privacy-fenced backyard almost all day when we're home, but they are often out of our sight. Its gone so well that I was lulled into a false sense of safety. I've got the sinking feeling that a hawk or eagle got her. There were no feathers or blood or parts *shudder* anywhere. The only other possibility is that she found a REALLY good hiding place in the yard and is being REALLY quiet . . . Is this something Silkies do? Would/could she wiggle through a gap in the fence? AAAARRRRGHHHHHH! Where's my baby? I am so sick to my stomach!!!
