In the Brooder
Jan 9, 2021
We have a favorite hen who went missing for about ten days, came back for an afternoon, and then left for another two days! She showed back up in the yard today for a little while and is now gone again. She is at the bottom of the pecking order so I think what she’s done is made a secret nest somewhere and gone broody. We don’t have a rooster, so there won’t be any chicks for her to bring home.

I want to track her somehow so we can get her home at night, way too many dogs, coyotes, etc. out. I’m not too worried about range because I’m pretty sure she’s in our neighbor’s yard, even though we’ve searched it a dozen times. All I can think of is to get a saddle on her and sew a Tile to it. Any other ideas please?

Hmm, besides those tracking pet tags I don't see a great way to "track" her, and not sure how a pet tag would work. ;)
My family always jokes about live trapping the mice that get into our well house, and painting there feet red so they show us were they're getting in. Not sure if this would work or not since its only ever been a joke lol, but could be something to consider. :lol:
