This is Harriet, she's a naughty but mostly VERY lucky chicken!
Last night we got home and we found Harriet was nowhere to be found. Disappeared without a trace.
All we could think of was a hawk attack as the big pen is open above, but with trees, high grass and various shelters, the chickens should be able to seek cover when needed... Mystery.
We went to bed most demoralised, wondering what we could do to improve the situation in a hurry.
This morning, I went to check again, just in case and... There she was! Happy and healthy, not a scratch, OUTSIDE the pen! She spent the night out and survived Mr Fox, very lucky indeed! Oscar and the other girls were most delighted to see her again and in she went, back in the safety of the pen.
