    [​IMG] One of my Speckled Sussex didn;t come back to the coop tonight. I spent a couple of hours tredging through our 5 acres of woods. I don't think she would have gone into the field which is another 5 1/2 acres. But I don't know where she could have gotten to. I am so upset this is the first time I have came upon this problem [​IMG]. I left our big back pole light on. I know that chickens will not generally move in the dark but I am hopeing that she will find or come home. I even had our two dogs out with us for a while trying to see if they could help me to locate her. I guess all I can do now is to hope that she is up in a tree some where that most predators won't or can't get to her. Ugg [​IMG] this is soo frustrating. atleast I didn't find a pile of feathers anywhere so I guess there is hope....... [​IMG]

    We still can't find her. Even had the dogs out this morning combing our woods. They "flushed out" all of the other hidden chickens but not her..[​IMG]

    She was just hatched out this spring. Can a pullet of this age go Broody????? Have you ever herd of a Speckled Sussex going broody this early?
