    I ran out of the house for a walk while the 3 new girls were running around in the side yard 8 x 30 fun for them dirt, grass, bugs, and whatever but they are entertained for sure. When I got back I freaked out [​IMG] they were GONE..... I first checked out the dog and looked to see feathers or something. Nope he was clean. Well, they got out under the fence![​IMG] the adjoining neighbor had them in a box. I plugged the holes in the fence with rock now impossible. If there is a will there is a way, but holy smokes they are fast and sneaky. I know Blackie had something to do with it [​IMG] LOL LESSON HERE Steve... never turn your back or leave without putting them up in the coop.

    Thanks for the reply but I do have underground wire in the coop. I left them out without putting them back in. I completely forgot them. Not in my new with chickens conscience yet [​IMG].

I don't know, seems this young batch I have now are all a bunch of delinquents. Except the leghorns and OEGBs. They are never in trouble.[​IMG]:

    we have a houdinie too... if there's one to try and fly out the door and escape it's her. So glad you're neigbor caught them for you. I would have completely freaked too... I think I do head count at least 4 times a day (down from at least 10 x's). At least they'll let you know where your security weaknesses are.
