In March 2011 a tiny bantam hen walked into my parents backyard and started our adventures with chickens. My parents took her around to neighbors & nearby farms but nobody claimed her. They kept her in their garage for a month (the little hen loved to sit on their Christmas wreath) but still no luck finding her family. Their city of residence doesn't allow chickens but mine does (less than 3 miles down the road)! My daughter & I fell in love with her so we bought a little cage from a local farm supply store and brought her home.
