    Today i went to my hens, there was feathers everywere, i knew it was two different hens because of feather colouring, i gathered all the hens and fed them and counted to see how many was missing and who they were, Melow who was a cream legbar my friend got me for my birthday was missing and Flora who was a battery hen that i got for christmas was missing. I went and followed Floras trail of feathers and found her with a big bite in her back dead, i thenwent and followed Melows trail and it cut off, i looked for two hours and couldn't find her, im praying she got away and is hiding but i don't think im that lucky, RIP Girls you will be missed, two best layers, two best personalitys and two of my favouraite hens, Fly High :'( :'(

    Johnn, I'm so sorry! That's so sad. I've heard you talk about those two chickens a lot and they are my favorites of the chickens you have. Poor Flora, she will be missed. You did a great thing saving her from the battery house. She was blessed to have that opportunity. But for Melow, there is still hope for her. She will be in my prayers and I really hope she will turn up. Keep your eye out for her... miracles do happen. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That's a good idea. What time is it right now where you live? If it's mid-day, you might not want to wait.

    Couldn't find her :'(!!!!!! my mam is going to go have a look tomorrow, but what im starting to feel is that someone went to steal some, couldn't catch them so set their dogs off and it got out of control, it killed flora so they left her and caught Melow so they took her, not sure though, just can not find her! :(, there was a trail of feathers all the way to flora and this is all i have for Melow!, there is other feathers but they leed up to that then it suddenly stops. :(
