GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

It is sad to have to report that one of my baby chickens did not survive the first week outside. It simply vanished. Ron thinks it got out in the open pen and a big hawk swooped down and grabbed it. We can not find a trace of the chick. All the others are doing well and adapting. Am I blue? Oh yes.

  1. It turned out the Araucanas can fly very early. I went to the pen time a few days later to see another one perched on top of the 6ft high fence ready to fly the coop. Ron and I immediately clipped their wings and that took care of that for now.
