    just wondering

    my splash orpington was MIA and than appeared with 10 chicks..... they are now about 4 weeks old
    this morning she was there and now ..... GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am wondering if she is MIA with another clutch or if I should scout more for the "scene of the crime"
    she left her chicks wandering

    she had 10, seems to only be 9 there now....

    will a broody hen leave her older chicks this soon?
