This friendly bird wandered into our yard and took up residence in some bushes 3 days ago. I bought some chicken feed today and fed it. Also put some water in a dish nearby. What is it? I'd rather not see it attacked by the coyotes, raccoons, or Hawks we see on our 5 acres. And no neighbors claim it as thier's. I do not mind giving it a home and reading up on chicken care. I've been contemplating chickens and think this might be a nudge that I should start now. 1. If I buy a coop, what 1-2 other chickens should I get? 2. I don't know if it's a rooster or not, but I haven't heard it crow. Is it a chicken or a rooster? 3. What breed is it?
