    I've been checking on the hens all day. I should have four red hens and one black hen. I've only seen three of the four red ones all day. She's not in the coop, not in the run. I don't know where she is. I don't know what might have gotten her either. If something attacked her, I hope it was quick.

    Hopefully she has just found a nice place to nest. Maybe she's gone broody...

    Sending good thoughts your way. I've had that happen a few times. The hen ends up showing back up at the coop while I'm out turning over every stone looking for her. [​IMG]

    Yes, she was. DH found them to be playing a chicken's version of hide and seek. Freaked me right out, I'll tell you. I left to run car pool and thought I only had four hens, not five. I was so stressed. DH did a head count and found one girl to be running in and out of the coop at all the wrong times.​
