I feel so bad, but I am in awe too! they free range all day, it was raining out. Myself or my son went out to the coop to check in after eggs and maybe one of us closed the door to the coop that afternoon? In any case, the sun went down and we ( my family and I) were all in the kitchen when a chicken flew up at our back door twice. My husband looked out and all 8 were there looking at us. He went out and discovered that the coop was closed. I wonder if they drew straws and made the youngest hen come get us. It was our Golden Laced Wyandotte. I got a chuckle after they were all safe and sound. How cool and funny is that? They knew where to find us and come tell us to help them!!!!
