I have several free range hens. Death loses are a fact of life. So when one of my red sex links came up missing 10 days ago I assumed the worst. I had gone riding that day and left the tack room open to my trailer. When I got home, I put my horse away and checked the trailer for chickens. Didn't find any so I closed it up. I went out of town for Christmas assuming I had lost another bird. Today, I rode again. Lo and behold, my red hen reappeared, along with a bunch of mysterious poo on my tack. She must have been locked in the tack room all along. What a tough girl! No food or water for 10 days. I will be much more careful in the future. Can't believe she's okay. Wow.
