Hi! I am a 3 day new owner of a rescued Red Star hen that had been wandering around the housing development for 5 months. I walk over there at nights and just found out about 2 weeks ago no one appeared to own her so I started going over and feeding her until a man living in one of the houses yelled at me, then proceeded to tell me he was going to call the SPCA! He then told me to take her. Well, never having even touched a chicken before I walked over and took her out of the pine tree she was perched in. Now I am in love and we named her Penny! She is extremely sweet and smart. We dig together and I turn over rocks while she waits for the cricket yummies to come hopping out. I never thought I would touch a chicken and now I absolutely love her! I have gotten a huge brown egg everyday from her. She is a bit on the thin side but I am trying to fatten her up a bit. Wonderful information on this forum! Thank you!
