i'm an idiot. had too much going on and closed the popdoor to keep more aggressive hens away from laying hen and thought me or dh would get back to them before roosting time. unexpected chaos ensued in the house and suddenly i realized it is DARK! he went down to put them in and they are not in the pen (6 ft fence). they are brown leghorns, one year old. what should we do? he is outside with a flashlight. i guess they flew out of the fence and into trees. suggestions...if we can or can't locate them? and yes, i do feel like a horrible, terrible, no good, chicken owner. feel free to tell me about it though.
