So, I had a chicken disappear 17 days ago. She had been very stubborn about wanting to sit on eggs, so when she disappeared, I was concerned but not terribly. As the weeks went by, my concern grew to worry to despair. So, when sitting out with my chickens tonight, and hearing a feather rustle in the wall, I was curious. For some reason (thank the Lord) I brought my flashlight out with me. I looked down the wall, and there was my missing hen. She is now inside and eating (for the last 20 minutes). I've been debating taking her to bed, but pretty sure hubby would draw the line. YAY!!! She's back!!!
