    When I went to put my girls to bed (in the coop) I noticed one was missing. As it was about dark, I was unable to look for her very well. I went out the next day and looked all over my yard but could not find her. I let the girls out (they free range) and as I came around to the porch I found her on the porch. I went up on the porch to see why she was not moving and her foot was caught in a wire shelf and she had been there all night hanging by her foot....so I put her in the coop and keep her separated from the others. Her leg was bent but not broken. Someone told me that she would be alright in a few days.... Not sure what else to do....
