I have a BIG yard. 15 acers. This darn RIR hen was not happy & got out the fence. I saw her & just knew I could not catch her so I just let every thing go a while. I was out there in about 2 hours & she came to me & squatted. I picked her up & put her back with the flock & home again. she went got water right away . so I have a good RIR hen she surrendered !!
