    Last night when I went to shut the doors of their coop I noticed that there were only 6 chickens instead of 7. I went looking for a little while after dark but didn't find any thing. There are lots of predators around my house but there weren't any feathers. Is it possible that she is alive? It was cold last night, it got down to 25 degrees. Can chickens survive the cold?

    I'd go looking this morning, and see where she might have gone.
    25deg isn't all that cold for a chicken.
    Hope you find her

    Looking for help! While free ranging some predator got ahold of a couple of my chickens. Out of 11 i found 2 and feathers to two more. I couldn't find anymore or even get them to make a peep. So my question is will they come back in the morning(if still alive) or will i still have to hunt for them?

    Look for them, they will more than likely come back if alive.
