    One of my chickens is missing. No feathers , no nothing just gone. I looked for her all over my place but nothing. What could have gotten her? And left no trace ? I have 8 acres , live in Texas. My chickens roam during the day and are put up at night. I count my chickens everynight last night one was missing. If anyone can help me with this please do, thanks

    I agree with Sandy, and it could possibly be a hawk. But maybe shes just went broody.

    I really think it will stay unknown for everyone till the chicken come back, because 8 acers are alot to look for the hen.
    I wish you best luck finding her.
