Hi al, i am from eastbourne south of the UK. I have joined, as i am concerned for our 2 bantams, which disappeared sometime after 4pm on Sunday, and have not been seen or heard since. Our garden is very secure, and we have had these for 6 years nearly now. Sunday afternoon, we put some lights in the fir tree in our back garden, and we saw them both sat there on the patio, they both have free roam of the garden. On this sunday, both of forgot to lock the chickens up but usually they go back to there house and climb into the closed part of it, and they are fine. On the monday, i went out to give them there food, and they were nowhere to be seen. There is no sign of any struggle like if they had been attacked by a fox or something. I have searched every single inch of our garden, and even now resorted to searching the neighbours back gardens also. Not a single sighting of them at all. I am hoping tomorrow being a sunny day, which may get them to move out into the open a little, and be spotted. My worry is that they have both got themselves stuck somewhere, and cannot get out. Is it possible a seagull can attack and kill a chicken? Seems strange that both of them have vanished at the same time. Any help or suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated.
