Hi! Wondering if all you folks who know more than me can translate my little red banty's behavior. Right now, my tiny little flock free ranges. 2 RIR roosters and 2 RIR hens, 2 small red banties, a grey banty, and her 6 chicks which are looking to be 3 roos and 3 hens, but just getting out on their own right now. Anyway, Henny Penny didn't show up at roost time; I always "walk" them into the barn, and tuck them in with treats and kind words, and a head count. She disappeared yesterday sometime while I was out , and I walked over our property about 4 or 5 times. ( ick. hot, sweaty, just before another storm, so I was worried! ) Didn't show up all day today, until just a bit ago, when I saw her in the barn getting food and water. Her breast feathers looked funky, like she'd been sitting on eggs, so I'm wondering if she has a hidden nest. Of course by the time that I had gone to get proper foot apparel so I could follow her, she'd disappeared; . Hidden nest? Insane Bird? Insane Bird owner? (no cracking "yolks"..lol) How does one locate bird with hidden nest, anyway? Thanks for input!
