    I finally found my MIA for 2 days hen, she was stuck between the fence and one of my plastic goat houses!!! I feel horrible because I probably walke right by her 20 times and didn't see her and she didn't call out to me.

    I've had her back inside with me for a day now but she can't walk. Her legs will not straighten out and her toes curl under. She's eating an drinking fine, turn her over and she can't kick with both legs, idk what's wrong with her??? Could she just be a bit squished from being stuck? I would have never even thought to look for her there, not enough room for a full grown hen to get in in the first place but I happened to notice a wing feather on the other side of the fence and felt it was in a strange place, look over and poof! There she was..
