    my sisters chicken somehow managed to escape cross the main road and get into the neighbours garden opposite we tried hard to catch her but it got dark and we didn't manage to get her so we are going to try again in the morning , Im scared ! how likely is it that a fox will find her before I do ?[​IMG]shes never been away at night I think she will roost in the thick bushes

    On the MN prairie.
    I would go out there with a flashlight (with your neighbor's permission, of course) and see if I could find where she's roosting, then pluck her off the roost and take her home. It's much easier to catch them at night than during the day.

    PS when I picked her up to put her back in the coop I noticed her tummy was pink and featherless , is this abnormal ?
