Big Red is still AWOL

Big Red is still missing. I'm fairly confidant that she is hiding somewhere hatching eggs. My main concern is that now that I have secured the chicken orchard, she will show up with a clutch of chicks following her and NOT be able to get back in with the other chickens. And of course if I let the dogs out and they find her with a batch of chicks - well, the results could be tragic.

The orchard is big, she could be in there somewhere, holed up in the blackberry bushes maybe. We'll just have to see what happens.

In other news, I was watching the baby chicks, and I think only 3 or 4 of the 9 chicks are roosters - that will mean a lot more eggs next year!
