My wife was watering the hens this afternoon and one of my EE hens bolted to freedom! My wife, son, granddaughter and son's friend could not catch the girl, now named "Lightning". I work 1 hour from home and did not get home until dark. When I did, I heard Lightning near my house. I went in and in quick fashion made a "chicken catcher" stick that I had seen in a book that I read. 5 minutes later I went back out to catch her but she was nowhere to be found. My dogs came in the house with me and could not have gotten her, and no other dogs were on my property at the time so I do not feel she was injured or attacked, only lost. I know most birds will try to roost off of the ground and it is easier to catch them at night, but I cannot locate her in the dark!! What can be done to give her the best chance to be rounded up and rehomed with the flock before she meets any nefarious situation? I am worried sick over her welfare but feel helpless at the moment!!
