Missing Chicken During Blizzard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Colorado got a pretty big snow storm yesterday. I notice during the storm one of the hens was missing. I figured she just hunkered down in an evergreen or somewhere and I'd see her at sundown at the chicken coop. Roost time came and went and no chicken. I thought when the sun comes up she would abandon her temporary roost and head for the chicken coop, but still no chicken. I went out during the storm and after the storm and a couple of times today looking for her, but still      no chicken. It wasn't really that cold so I'm thinking if she found a nice roost she's fine, but the longer it takes her to show up the more worried I get.

Found HER!  She was in an evergreen tree on the north side of the house. She didn't come out until the sun was shining on the tree. She STILL hasn't headed back to the chicken coop yet, but she's okay and that's all that matters.
