HELP! My Bantam Cochin hen, Pumpkin, is missing! When I let them all out (a rooster, three pullets, and Pumpkin), they were all fine. Then I came back later today, and she's gone!!! I searched everywhere around the house; under the coop, under ANYTHINg that she may be hiding under. It's raining and storming here right now, so I thought she'd be hiding until it stopped. The rest of her flock was already going to bed, but she wasn't with them. She usually always follows them everywhere, unless she can't for some reason. She can easily get back to her coop. Whenever she can't get back into her coop, for some reason, such as when I forgot to open the cage to the chicken run once and she couldn't go back in, she ALWAYS goes to the nearby shed to roost. That's where I always have found her, and it's always open. She always went there whenever she couldn't get to the coop by dark. But today, she's not there. She's not anywhere. She never roams too far from her home, either. I checked the whole entire surrounding woods area, calling her. I checked under all the sheds we have, under all the bushes and trees, in the trees, under all the porches, under the coop, around the coop, in the coop, etc etc etc. BUT SHE'S NO WHERE TO BE FOUND! Her three chicks, who are young pullets (about 3-4 months now), whom she is a foster mother to, seem confused because they follow her everywhere. Now she's gone and they can't find her, either. Help! It's getting darker out by the minute and I spend about a half hour or more looking, and she's no where to be found!
