For the past three months, we have had a stray hen wandering the woods and the edge of the property. We assume someone dropped her or she fell off a passing truck. She is white with a very few black feathers and lays brown eggs at the church next door. We have called her "Bait" because she has survived any varmints in the area. She has never mixed with our free rangers. They stay closer to our house than she did. Yesterday our dear dog Cleo decided to bring her home to the family. We didn't really want Bait. We thought of releasing her in the woods again but Cleo would undoubtedly bring her back. She wants her chickens where she can watch them. Cleo loves her chickens and takes good care of them. She went outside three times last night to check on her in the dog cage. I've checked Bait over and she seems healthy, no mites or vermin. We know she has been isolated from other chickens for 3 months so is it safe to skip the quarentine and let her out of the cage? One of the young roos was even courting her yesterday through the bars. Other than the open cage, we don't have a separate shelter for her. I feel bad leaving her out there. Anyone want a laying hen?
