This pathetic chicken was dropped off down the road from our house in a rural area. We found her standing near a small, filthy opened dog crate. She is very friendly and docile and came right over to me immediately when I called her. She hobbled so badly I thought she might have a broken leg but I was able to check her all over for any injuries (none). From what we can determine, she lived in that crate all the time, neglected, and her owners no longer wanted her and either hoped we would "find" her or she would be picked up by a predator. Fortunately she was there only one overnight before we found her. In the past two days we've had her, we've given her a badly-needed bath and lots of food and water (she was starving) and she is learning to walk. She is already improving rapidly and walking much better with no signs of limping - just some balance issues and trying to figure out which foot comes next! She has the high peep sound of a young bird but we don't know how to determine her age. We have no idea what kind of chicken she might be. She is considerably larger than my barred rocks and even my partridge rock, but all feathers and bones now. She appears to be healthy with no mites or lice or any sign of disease. She is living in our large dog crate until she can get enough strength to be moved to the coop. We take her out for closely supervised "walks" in the yard. She seems to have no clue about scratching, dust baths or any other normal chicken behaviors. We've only had chickens for a little over a year and our flock is doing great so this is our first experience with a chicken needing rehab. We already love her sweet and friendly nature and will happily add her to our flock if she can withstand the rigors of life with the big bossy girls. We would appreciate any advice or ideas about her breed or possible age.
