My wild hen Casino ( I have gathered she is a game hen) "disappeared" 3 weeks ago. She used to always come out at least once a day from the bushes to eat and catch geckos and hang out. But anyways, 3 fridays ago was the last time I saw her. I figured/hoped she was laying on a nest somewhere hidden in the bushes and would appear one day about 3 weeks later with chicks. Well, this afternoon she appeared, but no chicks! I helped her catch like a dozen geckos, she ate some feed and cracked corn, and drank a bunch of water. I thought maybe she just got up and would go back but she hung out for a few hours and when she went back into the bushes she just went up on her favorite tree branch and took a nap. Anyways, I was curious what people thought. What do you think she has been doing for the last three weeks? If they sit on eggs for 21 days and nothing happens, do they immediately give up? If she was sitting on eggs, I'm pretty sure they were fertile. Before she disappeared she had been hanging around with her boyfriend Zack almost constantly. He disappeared when she did too. No sign of him today though. Or I thought maybe something happened to her eggs - mongoose, rats, or whatever. I wish I could understand chicken talk so I could ask her!
