    It's been a bad week and a half [​IMG] My favourite chicken, BB was hit by a car and now one of my SLWs is missing. She just up and disappeared the other day and never came back. I noticed we had been lacking in eggs but I related it to stress over the rooster + new pecking order. We had one dead chicken, two broody and two who were stressed with the rooster. But I think Arlene laid all of hers in the woods somewhere and decided to brood on them. I have looked all over my property and can't find her or her eggs. Do you think she has been eaten? Will she come back? [​IMG]

    I hope she comes back.

    My girls have been wandering for the last week. I found one in the neighborhood behind our farm, in a fence with two (luckily not aggressive) dogs. I found one in my horse pasture after I had given her up for dead. The third one was just roosting in a tree right by the coop- I just now figured that one out.

    Anyway, I hope your chicken resurfaces. I know it's stressful worrying about where they may be and what might be happening to them.
