    Ok not sure if this is the right section to ask this. We have 2 hens one of them is not much bigger and weighs about as much as our SLW. Well when I go to close the coop I do a head count. Well one of the hens was missing. I looked around the coop thinking she may not have made it inside before it got dark, but did not find her. So I figured that she was a gonner. Well when I went to collect the eggs from today I found her. She is sitting in the brooder/laying box. Not sitting on anything but was in there. I was wondering if any one else has had a similar experience. She is not quite a year old. Just a little baffled by it.
