    The other day our two month old Cochin disappeared. It looks like she was taken by either something above or a cat. There was no evidence of her being eaten but it is so unlikely that she was stolen. It seems like if she were stolen, they would take her brother too. We reluctently let them free range with the 14 big girls. I was sure that nothing would get them if they were with the flock of giant birds. The only thing I can figure is that the two little ones were across the yard and a cat snuck in a carried her away. She was the sweetest thing, she was the only one that wanted to cuddle. She would always jump up on my shoulder and sing in my ear.

    Thanks [​IMG] Well, he is. He keeps calling for her [​IMG] I don't know whether we should get him another baby to hang out with. He is so tame, I don't think he would be it up.
