i am so sick and upset right now, yesterday evening when i went out to put up all the girls, one was gone!! one of my 8-9 week old barred rocks! she was nowhere to be seen. the others that are her age where all up in the tree by the coop so i was hoping that maybe, just maybe she was in the bushes and i couldnt see her. the others didnt look like they where scared, i think they where just showing off to the bigger girls(13-14 weeks) who couldnt jump up into the tree! so after looking over the entire yard i was praying this morning she would be at the coop door to greet me. no such luck. there are no feathers, blood, nothing to make it seem like she was killed. im thinking maybe hawk?(whick i have never seen!) im also thinking maybe she wondered over to the neighbors, i will go over to check and there she will be! my poor girls, they love to free range and i hate to keep them in, but i dont want to risk and more of them disappearing!!
