First off we are 98% free range. I have a homemade hen spa that the crews sleeps in and that is where I keep the feed and water. It rained all day and night yesterday so I was lazy and didn't go pen them up. This morning I was up right at dawn and one rooster of out already going crowing like crazy ( I don't know if that is normal cause I sleep like a log). Thought it was weird so I checked the roost and I was missing one hen and there where a lot feathers (but they were not the right color for the hen I was missing). Upon looking around I found the missing hen about 50 yards from the pen and she was sitting in the top of a fallen tree. Now I go pen up the chickens tonight and the same hen is sitting in the spot I found her this morning. I am afraid she will get eaten. Why didn't she pen up? I noticed her out with the other chickens today so I don't think she is broody (even though i don't really know what that means). Any thoughts? If I could get to her I would, and just put her on the roost with the other chickens.
