    I let them out and seeing its winter i put them in a pen rather than letting them free range and all of a sudden ones gone... I thought maybe a hawk but i heard nothing and theres no feathers will she come back if she wandered off?

    Once I had two of mine go missing for a day-and-a-half. I didn't find anything and posted flyers and a neighbor 3 roads over called me and said she saw them running around. Sure enough, they were there, hiding under a bush. Give it some time and see if they come back. If you're worried, you can look for them. If there are no feathers, chances are they're hanging out somewhere else.
