Back around Thanksgiving, a chicken showed up in the alley and followed my husband up to the house. He called me at work and said you are not going to believe who is visiting us.....needless to say I did not get home until Midnight and thought my husband was messing with me until he took me outside and pointed high in the tree. I was floored, I had no idea chickens could fly so high into a tree. We live in a small ohio village and chickens are not aloud in city limits so I was not sure where the chicken came from. The weather was still fall like and the chicken...now named Stanley per my husband was pecking around through the leaves by day and roosting in the tree by night. After a few day's I finally started feeding and watering since it seemed he was not going anywhere ( I know I continue to call a he, even though I have no clue). Started out feeding bread and apples, after about ten days I broke down, went to the local feed store and bought a 50lb bag of feed. It has now been two months that Stanley has been with us, while I was not sure what to do for him this last month with the temps reaching -30+ with wind chill. I gave him an old igloo dog house we had, positioned out of the wind but at night he insisted on being up in the tree....not sure how he has survived but every morning I go out and feed/water and talk to him and he comes running to great me. To make a long story short, I have no idea what kind of chicken it is, male/female and since I am not supposed to have a chickens in town, I can not build a coop....what is the best way to care for Stanley? Should I try to find a better home for him....I must say I want what is best but i have become attached to him. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!. Chicken is all white with red top and gobbler?
