Lost chicken...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got an old Road Island red hen from my neighbor. I have only had her for four days now, and She is molting right now. I thought my coop and run were very secure but I guess not because she has completely disappeared from the coop. This is the first time she has left the coop. And she hasnt free ranged yet. What should I do? Do you think she'll come back later?

How close is your neighbor?  Could she have gone back there?  Ask the neighbor what her habits were and where they think she might be.  Is she the only chicken you have?  Are you saying that she was molting because you found feathers around and you are hoping it is her molt and not traces of her being taken?

Do you have any predator problems?

Romans 3:23 – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 10:9-10 – that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
