I read on the local news opinion forums that someone had dumped a flock of chickens in the bush sometime Sunday. By the time I got there Monday evening, the flock of twelve had already been decimated down to four. My daughter and I went back today and found one last live hen, for a total of five. Please, before taking on the responsibility, make sure you have an exit plan. Either commit to caring for them for their life span or be prepared to dispatch them humanely. And yes, they are currently housed in a rotten 1980 TravelMate Scout camper as I had nowhere else to put them.
