my marshmallow peep is gone. she had the biggest eggs, & my only white ones. when i tucked them in last night three were missing. thankfully my chipmunk (phoenix) and ami (silkie) turned up this morning, but my peep has flown the coop.<br><br>
i wonder what got to them, scared them out, ate one, whatever (if i knew what got them, i could protect against it better. damn, i hope it wasn't a hawk- the only thing i can do to protect against that is never let them out.)<br><br>
very sad today. (and guilty, as i put them away late- had a headache & didn't lock their coop up till after dark.) my poor peep. she always had a bit of wanderlust, so i am hoping against hope she took off & will come back, but it's just tiny suburban yards she'd be obvious in, not open country or woods. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>

sigh, she's gone. she'd never leave her flock. i'm just glad there are no more casualties. life on earth is tough for a chicken. we miss her a lot, & the kids haven't stopped calling her. it's always tough when there is a loss and no body; what happened? i have a cat i've been calling for 8 years. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
