    I just got some chickens two days ago. Today one of the HENS got loose thats all i have are hens.
    This one got out by accident and went into the HEAVY brush. I tried to go in after him but it got
    way to thick i tried to lure her out with food but that did not work. Its now night and i cant hear
    her or see her at all. How do i get her back out of the woods so i can catch her and put her back in
    the coop?? I am worried that she will wonder off... she is one of 8 hens i have..

    She is probably hiding in the brush or up a tree roosting tonight. If you can't find her she may come back tomorrow to rejoin her flock.
    Since she's only been there a couple days it is possible she does realize that the coop is home.

    Good luck and I hope she comes back.
