    I know many may think she was eaten by a predator. I know, I thought the same thing the first three day of not finding my old english game pullet. She recently started laying egg but not in my house I found them in nieghbor house. Well yesterday my brother saw her in our backyard with our other 4 hen but when I came back from wirk she was gone she hasn't come back since. Any ideas? I think she may have gotten broody and is sitting in a clutch somewhere

    I agree she is broody. Today we found our bantam mix setting on 18 eggs! Good luck and I hope you find her.
