then returned. I let him and his 6 girls out of the coop to roam on a Friday morning. Two hours later, I went out to check on them and he was gone. Vanished. On Sunday, 3 days later, I was still grieving his loss when I heard his crow. I ran outside and low and behold, there he was. Crowing outside the coop to the rest of the girls who were inside the coop. I was so happy I actually cried tears of joy. It's a complete total mystery. Is this normal? Will he leave again? Is it possible he was taken and actually found his way back home? Has anything like this happened to anyone else?
