    Is it possibleshe went broody and set up a nest somewhere. I thought hawks could only take out small chicks and they usually hunt during the day.

    she was only a few months old. but she was almost as big as my full grown hens. she was the only white hen. she was about 4 months and she was pretty big

    I sure hope she turns up, but four months old is too young to be broody.

    Good Luck,

    I hope you find her and she is okay, but some of the possible predators are : fox, coyote, owl, large wild cat
