I wasnt sure where to post this but I need help. the nextdoor neighbors mooved away. they left there 6 chickens (2 roosters!!!!). I have been checking on the birds every other day or so... bringing them food & water. & making sure they stay healthy. 2 of the hens look prety beet up & skinny. on monday (the first day I checked on them) there was a fresh core of a lettice head & about a cup of dry dog food... there hasnt been any new food since then & they sometimes eat the dogfood but usually just leave it alone. I dont know what I can do for these birds. I would take them & keep them but I dont have my coop in sc built (we are in SC now on vacation before school starts). I dont know if they intend to come back for the birds or leave them to die. there is one small egg in the coop.. been there for a while. the roosters have been very quiet lately & the hens are apperently not laying. one of the hens is VERY skinny but has a very big brest (as if it just ate). Whenever I open the door they all rush there to eat what ever they can grab before I close the door (bugs/weeds/bits of grass). I have been thinking about leting them out but I dont know that I would be able to catch them or to get them back in there coop. If they are still there by the 13th we will take them to Michigan with us... Im just worried about how we will get them there because it is several hours to get to MI & we are spending the weekend with a friend that lives near novi. there is a Rhode Island Red rooster & hen, 2 possible Isa brown hens, and a BEAUTIFAL rooster that I dont know what breed it is (smaller than the RIR Roo but not a banti. cream colord with red sholders & saddle, long bare Orange leggs).
