I wanted to let you guys know about a situation i came across yesterday. I was driving to pick up my car that had been in the shop. I took a "back" way to the mechanic's place and was shocked to see around 12-15 chickens scratching on the side of the road looking for food. There was no house within 100 yards in either direction. The group looked to be several young roos at 1st glance. I went back to the house and caught 3 of the chickens. 1 handsome silkie roo and 2 young aracauna roos. the others took off. I went back this morning and brought home 3 more. The new group included a pullet, a cochin roo and another young aracauna roo. Hopefully some will survive through the night as I plan on going back tomorrow. It burned me up to see this, these birds were very docile and where they were dumped was near an area where many predators are known to be in the vicinity. Whoever dumped the birds could have listed them in a local shopping paper for free without doing that. Anybody else ever run across this situation??
