    Just wanted to share Hilda's story
    Hilda went missing 11 days ago...without a trace, leaving her sisters behind.
    We live next to open countryside so a search was difficult, but we tried our best to no avail :-( we went out shaking food and calling Hilda to come home
    11 Dark, rainy, wintry days later and against all odds our Hilda was found and is back in her coop [​IMG]

    Usually when a hen disappears like that she comes home with baby chicks. Maybe Hilda was just having a walk about. I hope she will stay home after this and save you all the worry.
