    Unfortunately, you probably won't find her if it's been that long. I have one that's been missing about the same amount of time. If she did go broody and start a nest out in the woods, it's been long enough that she probably would have been taken by a predator by now. However, if you have a rooster it's not impossible that she's out on a clutch somewhere and gone broody. I had lost a second one and was ready to totally re-evaluate their free-range schedule, but then she found her way back about an hour later. The first one though still has not come back, and after the first couple days I gave up hope. We have coyotes, bobcats, skunks, foxes, hawks, owls, etc around here.

    [​IMG] that she comes back with a little group of chickies following her!

    well after that 1st and 2nd hour we went inside and we just started praying to god when it was dinner that she would come home on the 29th of October she was disappering every day but always coming home we thought it was because it was cold that night so she would go sit on the eggs!
    p.s. we do have a rooster and now it is gods hands dear lord please let her come home to us alright with little chicks amen!
    and one more thing you know the holes in the woods we think she is in one of them hiding her eggs and herself we just hope she'll come home (keep fingers crossed)[​IMG]
