    My poor little Dorothy Gale.
    Something took her the other night.
    I'm not even sure what.
    I went down to the coop and there was just a tuft of feathers.
    There's no way she could have gotten out herself.
    And I looked everywhere for her. Not a sign.
    I have 12 chickens, and I love each one, but DG was the only one I raised from an egg, so she was special.
    She was just 4 months old. Didn't even get to lay one blue egg.
    Oddly enough, we had visitors on the day she disappeared, so I have a picture with her on her last day.
    Here's a pic of her pipping, freshly hatched, a few weeks old, and with me on her last day. Sad.

    I'm so sorry! I'd be so upset, too. She was a pretty girl, but maybe she'll be back. If there's no body, there's always hope. They are so special, these sweet hens.

    I'm very sorry...
    Just in case by some miracle she eluded her captor, I would search and search close in and further afield. I am hoping that it will turn out she is alive and that you find her (she may be injured and unable to get to you...)
