    it may not have been developing right, or had a crack and the hen ate it. they get hungry not leaving the nest.

    I am sorry about your chick, do you have more?

    a while back one that was sad- Jessica Simpson was in her yard with her small dog, and a coyote ran up and grabbed the small dog in front of her. Even though she saw that, she put up lost dog posters.
