I got three bantams Araucana on Friday, one hen, one pullet, and one unknown 3 month old. I kept them in the house the first night because it was very cold and windy out and I wasn't quite done with their coop. When it was ready, I moved them out there and they seemed to be doing fine. I had read that you should confine chickens in a new coop for several days to get them used to it before letting them free range. My plan was initially let them range in a small fenced area and then eventually give them free run of our yard--about half an acre. I've been going out and checking on them twice a day and they seemed to be settling in well. At some point today after 7am (when I checked on them) they got out of the coop. I have a hook and eye closure on the door, so I'm not sure how it was opened--no one else was in the yard--but I looked out around 2pm and saw 2 of them pecking away in the yard. It was the hen and the maybe rooster. They ran under the bushes when they saw me. The pullet was up near the house and when I got close to her SHE FLEW OVER THE HOUSE!!! I ran through the house and out the front and she was up on the roof so I yelled at her and she ran back over to the back side of the roof. I haven't seen her since. The maybe rooster (we're calling him Pat) came up on my deck when it got dark but when I went out to get him in flew into a magnolia tree. It's full dark now and I went back to check the coop hoping they'd gone back in but no luck. So what should I do? I left the coop open with food and water. Will they come back???
