    Obtained 4 pullets this past summer, Red Stars, and all but 1 have become wanderers. The property across my rd. has pine trees and it was too much for these 3 to resist. 1 was hit by car(killed instantly) and the other 1, as soon as I noticed her going into pine trees across rd. I seperated and processed. Had ANOTHER of this bunch go into pines this past week and I was tired of having to process these gorgeous excellent layers so I found someone who wanted an excellent layer. My chickens are kept in a penned area until daylight and then turned loose to pasture and I had never, in 10 yrs. of chickendom, had them go across the rd. Naughty Red Stars. This was a gorgeous pullet imo.She gave her hiding place away becuz she was so vocal. I heard her doing "egg song" or whatever song she sang in the pines.

    Dang, you'd think with all that space on your side of the road, they would have stayed put.
