    She must've fallen off the top of the coop and got stuck between the fencing and back of the coop! had to cut the wire and tarping to get to her! Boy was she hungry!! From now on i do a headcount in the day too!! i can't tell you how long she was there-she never made a peep! I'm so happy!!

    Glad she is back, I hate having my shed so close to my pens...I lost a roo a few year ago ,due to getting stuck between the fence and shed. Not a pleasant think to clean up [​IMG]

    Yep, good outcome! Some chickens, and all turkeys, are born looking for a way to die.
