    [​IMG] Im so sad. She got out through the slots on the cage and made her way outside. She froze to death. Im going to my inlaws tonight to make a wooden box with a hardware cloth cover. Im not losing anymore like that. Poor little thing. The worst part is checked in them at 2. I went back out at 5 and she was dead.

    Here she was. My first little Polish baby.

    It's always so sad when something happens to the babies.

    Sounds like she was a little Polish pistol. Already escaping. I'm sorry that she's gone. She was sooooo cute.

    I agree, don't beat yourself up. It doesn't take much of a mistake with chickens. Many of us can attest to that. Sorry you lost the chick.
