    Our chicken plucky got outta her pen & got chased under the shed by our boxer & wont come out. This is third day shes been under there. Any suggestions how 2 coax her out without scaring her even more? We've only had her a lil over a week...

    I would make sure the dog was nowhere around for awhile. Then I would try to coax her out with food--maybe scratch or corn, scrambled egg, whatever her favorite snack is. Has she had access to water and food under there?
