    our three hens turned up missing this a.m.
    if they were not taken by a predator, how far might they be able to travel?
    they are approx. 6-7 weeks old and do not have their wings clipped.
    they have been outdoors for about a week now and were doing fine.
    please offer any suggestion as to how far and where to check.

    Were they locked in a coop? In a run? Turned out loose? Did you see her go to roost last nite?
