    Depends on how long you have had them. If you only had them a week or 2 she probably will not come back.

    If they are a bonded pair, and she is used to the sounds and sights of your garden from looking through the aviary mesh, she probably will return when she is hungry and can see and hear her mate.

    Probably not unless she has been let out before or if she see others of her in kind than she might stick around long enough for you to try to catch her.

    she didn t come back after she had 3 clutches of eggs and after she live more than a year in our garden... well the good part is that I still have 2 eggs of her and put it under a ringnecked dove so hopefully...
