Sophia's Missing

the Barred Rock,
is missing.
Melanie came in at check
as she was putting the Chickens
to bed on this hot Summer Night.
After careful count,
she knew
was missing.
So we 3 C's
headed out
into the growing darkness,
flashlights in hand.
We looked
in all the obvious places
and poked around
in the tall grasses too.
We found no Chicken,
nor did we find feathers
as sign of a Predator.
Best guess has it:
it was either too hot
for a Big Chicken
or she is broody.
Time will tell.
