    So a while bac we had a hen go missing, it was sad times :-(, we looked everywhere for her and nothing, 2day when was taking a walk to our great pleasure we saw her, after getting closer saw that she was not alone and had 5 chicks with her :), so happy to have her back and have 5 lovely chicks as a bonus, they are now safely tucked up in there own run.
    Would add pics but this my 1st post and not sure how lol

    That's very cool. How long had she been gone? And I wonder who the daddy is?

    She had been gone for just over 3 weeks, the only cocks we got are Buff Orpington as this is our main bird, although we don't know what she is lol
