    My family decided to get two hens and a rooster. One hen got scared and ran off last night and hasnt come back at sunset. Does that mean she's been eaten? Or hiding?

    How long have you had them? As long as she is familiar with the coop being "home", IF she is in hiding, she is likely to turn up.

    Oh, I see this is your first post, so welcome to BYC [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Most birds will return home after being frightened off by a predator. With that see, who knows what she may encounter while she is out there. She may be back by morning, she may not...
