I new to this so bear with me. We have a had chickens now (3) for about 3 months. They range all day and head into the coop at dark and I let them out of the run to range about 7:30 am. they are laying and all seems well. O.K. yesterday I visited a friend and brought home what looked like my little buff girls twin sister. Now she came from the same coop maybe the same brood (theres a possibility) but had never seen outside the barn. My chickens are Cochin bantyies one rooster 2 hens and I brought home a 3rd hen. My friend said leave her in the cardboard box until dark and then put her in the coop and hour or so after mine had gone to roost. When they come out in the morning they will all be as one. Maybe........ It never got that far. I opened the box with out closing the door and she flew (it was still daylight out). I saw when she landed and went to get my net. When I got back she was no where to be seen. My rooster, he was with his girls over by the garden ran over to where she , the new girl, had lited but had returned to her girls by the time i got the net. This morning my wife spotted her up in the woods so we thought we could net her. Not .....I missed and she fly into the woods about 100yd away into deep cover. My question is will she eventually come to the rooster??? and join in or is that unlikely. Im all tore up.
