This morning we had wonderful thunderstorms, good for the garden rain and no drama in the yard WRONG!!!! As soon as the rain let up I went to check on everyone outside. All chickens were in the coop except one, the door was open so I was worried something had ran in and taken her during the storm. There is alot of feathers on the ground but on further inspection they are Miss Winnies, she is molting.. I have searched my ding dang yard for hours hunting for the tell tale pile of feathers. I'm to the point now that I don't think something took her. Am I crazy? I think that girl is off building a nest somewhere. She is a buff orpington, I'm not sure if they tend to go broody or not, but she has always made a gremlin noise at me since she started laying eggs just like Squirty did. Last night we even laughed at how much she sounded like Squirty just standing in the coop growling at me. So back to it, am I nuts to think she's alive and sitting somewhere and we will hopefully see her in 3 weeks? Either way the hubs has had it and all chickens will be confined from this day forward!
