We found a chicken she never really liked anyone other then my boyfriend (we have had her about 3 weeks maybe a month). She keeps going in the woods and staying out for a few days at a time and then will show back up. Last night she showed back up, I went outside gave her some banana to try and coax her to stay (It worked! or something did..) She's still out there now and has become extremely friendly. While I was sitting on the front porch she came over to me and stood next to me so I could pet her. Don't get me wrong i'm very happy that she is friendly and letting us pet her, do you think maybe she is getting ready to lay and wants to be close to the place she calls home? Maybe something scared her into coming back?
