Last night when I was out loving my new horse I heard one of the hens FREAKING out. I glanced over at the coop.. it was too late for them to be singing an egg song.. I didn't see anything. Then the panicked clucking stopped ..... So I went back to brushing Penny Later that night my sister and I were setting up a pen for the ducks for the night time. When we came out of the coop my bloodhound was sniffing around in a pile of feathers. I almost kept on walking because there is usually feathers along side the fence of the pen where all of the ducks and hens preen, until I saw something in the dimness. A body. A barred rock body. Noodles!!! She has flown over into our yard a few times but luckily we have found her before the dogs. This time she wasn't so lucky... and I blame myself 100%!!!!! I heard it all happening, I could have stopped it, we were talking about clipping her wings again because they probably grew out.... it's all my fault!!! When I heard her freaking out she must have realized that she was cornered, trapped... Poor girl!
