We had chicken fly out of the coop I have been trying to catch it over a week it’s staying on our property but once I get close it flys away. Does anyone have any ideas what I can try to do to catch it

Watch her so you know where she goes to roost at night.
Wait until full on dark then go get her.
Chickens are very easy to handle after dark.

Don’t use a bright flash light. If I need to mess with chickens after dark I use my cell phone light and put it in my shirt pocket. That gives me just enough light to see but won’t disturb the chicken. If you can reach the chicken, just pick her up with your hands instead of the net. Happy hunting!
