I have a mystery.
I have an ISA Brown hen who keeps escaping from the pen. I have clue how she does it.
It would make more sense if she were a small chicken that could fit though all the gaps.... but she's not. She's an ISA Brown.
HOW IS SHE ESCAPING?!

All the fences are 3 meters tall and wobblily wire that wouldn't hold her weight. Also the whole reason that she is escaping is so she can lay her egg in the rabbit hutch.

*EDIT* I forgot to add that her wings have been clipped. (We didn't clip them!)

Today has been hectic.

I went outside early to check the chooks, as you do. I immediately noticed Flash was missing. (She is my favorite, hard to go unnoticed)
I was that concerned. She was probably wondering the yard or something. But when I fed the chickens later, she didn't come running as usual. So I gave a quick look around.... nothing. Not too worried yet. Then I had to go and do a triathlon. So I wasn't back for.... say... 2ish hours. Got home, looked for a bit, still nothing. I thought she had just gone somewhere to lay her egg. Went to the pool. Stayed there for 3ish hours. Came back.... And there she was. Just sitting in the chicken pen like nothing had happened. :mad: But, then I went to check her, and see if she had any injuries. She did. Lots of them. Not big bleeding ones, sort of, scabbed over looking graze thingys. A long one down her crop area, small ones under her wings, and scratches on her feet and legs. We have given her antibiotics to stop the scratches getting infected.
Any clue what could have happened?
