My neighbor has hens and came home and I hen was in my driveway. She decided she was staying. I tried to get in contact with the neighbors and they were out of town. I finally went to their house after the chicken has been here for a week. I talk to the owner she notice the chicken had been missing. She said that the other hens pick on her and seem to treat her as an out cast. She must have got scared and left. Now she won't leave nad seems to love me. I have never owned a chicken. At first she liked it on top of my fountain. So I made her a really cool nest out of soft weeds and I put carpet and towels underneath to make it nice and soft. She did not like it after I fixed it . Now she is on top of two plastic containers. She is not laying eggs and it not quite a year old. I am afraid if she doesn't have another hen she will die and become lonely. It looks like she loves it here and is just glad to be here and away from her mean sisters. Should I get another chicken? The neightbor know if they take her back she will be right back at my house. They gave me some feed and I also give her fresh water and veggies. She goes around and eats bugs and worms. I just love her. i never knew owning a chicken would be so fun. It will soon get very cold here and I am afraid she will freeze to death with out another chicken. I have a dog pen that I could put her in. She just loves to do her own thing and have the whole yard to run around in. She is just a different type of chicken. I noticed she was smaller then the other hens she ws with. Do you think that is why they picked on her? Maybe she hates to be confined. Dang I just don't know. I don't mind keeping her I just want her to die. Any ideas.
