One of the chicks has disappeared.

Alas, this morning one of the chicks has disappeared!   There is no way it was developed enough to escape on its own so we are none the wiser as to what has happened.   We cleaned out the nest box to make sure it was not buried in the bedding and as there are no remains or obvious signs of it being eaten?   We fear a rat may have discovered the nest.    Luckily the remaining two others appear unharmed, healthy and active.
