    Yesterday we found a baby magpie asleep in the middle of the highway (a lucky bird indeed). Its parents were nowhere in sight and so we have adopted it. It was close to death and we think we have got it past the danger period and so it should be OK.
    The question is will our chicken attempt to hurt/kill it if she gets the chance. The chicken is very domesticated (she after all rides in the car on the dash and is more of a pet than a farm animal).

    cool! the chicken might attempt to hurt something, maybe more details would help. If you treat the chick well, it shouldn't be harmful especially if it's a chick.
