    I live in a good sized neighborhood and every since I started raising chickens I have always looked to see if anyone else in my neighbor hood does. I have never found anyone. Well today my neighbor comes over and tells me that one of my chickens are out. I go out and look and it is a RIR but not mine. Has a bigger comb. So now I am freaking out trying to figure where this chicken came from and how it found my house lol. I followed it and tried to catch it to keep it safe. It went to a house a few doors down and was hanging out in the yard but no one was home. I took the visitor and out it in my run while my girls are put up in the coop. When I saw my neighbors came home, I spoke with them and it was theirs. I was glad I found the owner and got it back home. The funny part was it layed an egg in my run lol. I have been waiting for mine to start laying and a visitor lays in my coop. I was thinking that it was just my luck that someone else's chicken lays in my yard and I cant get mine to yet.

    we have a coop that is close to the road, one day a buff roo was hanging around I think someone dropped him off. we brought him in and we had buff chicks for years after, down to one of his grand kids now.
