[[SOLVED!!! Story on last page]] one of my Rhode Island Red hens ran away! Home description: House is a .25 Acre lot with a 7 ft fenced in backyard, and 8 mature oak trees lining the fence. House in on a subdivision off the highway. with a bean field across the street and corn on either side of the subdivision parallel the highway. Situation: Already had 5 girls in my flock and added two Rhode Island Red hens two days ago. at first i had the two Rhode Island Reds in the run and the rest would come in and out using the human door. they were getting along fine so yesterday i opened the door. they established the pecking order and went about their business. everything was great. then a family emergency came up and i had to leave the property. I thought everything would be just fine. I came back after 4 hrs and all the hens were in the coop except for one of the new Rhode Island Reds. I looked all around the property in the trees and up and down the subdivision with no luck. At lunch today i went back and looked again and she was not back. Help request: What can i do? How far can chickens run? is there a way i can get her to come back? Since she is new to my property will she even think to come back? how long before i give up? is there a good resource website that i can use to post lost pets info? thanks in advance for your help! I love this community of chicken lovers who help each other out.
