I built my girls an extended run so they had more room to do their chicken thing (I was losing too many of them to predators during free range moments).However, an hour or so before dusk, sometimes I let them out to roam. They had been in there for a week,so I took a chance and let my feathered ladies out after being "cooped" in for so long. Frigging 5 minutes later, I hear screaming and look out the window to see "Pompa-doo" hauling ***** to hide under the deck, which is uncommon, she rarely runs. So I run out to see a Sharp-Shinned hawk by the fenceline, flying back up into the trees , but sans chicken. I hear chicken screams but couldn't see the chicken in question. I mean, I am LOOKING DOWN and see only empty ground and a railroad tie by the fence and panicked screams are emmanating from the earth. Turns out that Chicken Little got lucky and wedged herself first between the railroad tie and fence, then shoved herself INSIDE the railroad tie, so only her feet were protruding.....I literally had to pull the garden fencing away, get on my hands and knees, and gently grab hold of her 2 waggling feet and yank her out of railroad tie. She was the runt of my bantam crew, the last to develop. In this case, her size was her strength, because if another chicken was trapped between the fenceline and the railroad tie, they would have been pinned and easy pickings. Chicken Little was lucky that she could fit so quickly inside the random hole inside the railroad tie. She was unscathed. It took forever to wrangle up the rest of the girls, but I finally did! And Chicken Little lives to see another day! *If you are FB friendly, please find and like my site "The Fit Green Chicken" as it is a page dedicated to green living, chickens, solar cooking, gardening, composting, and fitness!
