we had a Cochin hen go missing while we were away for 3 days. Had a friends son tending our flock. The poor thing had fallen between a 3 1/2 X 14 inch space in the chicken coop. Did not find her till today 11 days later a few times I heard noises in that area of the coop and would inspect but never saw her and thought the sounds were being heard from under the coop. We got her out and amazingly she started to drink immediately!! I have her in a separate pen to recover. She has her food and water and is preening herself as her feathers were quite a mess. She appears Very stuff but doesn’t have broken bones thankfully. I feel it’s a darn miracle she survived and I’m so happy and feel horrible for what she went through. We immediately fixed and covered any spot in the coop that we felt could be an issue. We are new to chickens so any advise on what to do for her and what to look for would be appreciated. I’m so happy and thankful to have her back safe now.
