We were gone the entire afternoon and got home after dark. That happened once before and Miss Hattie was up on the top of the run with Sally so I went out there and Sally was there but Miss Hattie wasn’t there. I called her and called her and she was nowhere. I came in and asked Vince to help me look for her but he was headed out to put up the other chickens so I went out and started calling her and I heard her begin to cluck and I found her. She was planning to spend the night on one of the horizontal beams for the carport. I was able to get her and safely put her in the coop so nothing can get her tonight.
Not only was I upset at the thought of her being left out all night, I was not wanting to have to tell all the Miss Hattie fans that she was missing.
But . . all is well. She’s safe and we’ll be darned sure we’re home before dark from now on.
