This bird showed up on our doorstep in Canterbury, Kent. He walked straight into the house and when we phoned wild life centres they said they wouldn't take it in and when we said it could get ran over they said if that happens - phone the police.... needless to say we couldn't leave her especially when she kept trying to get in to our house. We thought it was a young pheasant to begin with but as time has gone on, it began to look more like a chicken/rooster but now it's began to grow larger darker feathers pointing down underneath and he doesn't make chicken noises but a small soft chirp. He is also pretty friendly, can just sit on your lap while you stroke his back. Any help or ideas on what he is or how old he is? would be great. Oh yeah and he doesn't fly too much, he can fly about 3 metres at most. We posted this on a bird forum and everyone seemed to say completely opposite things... we were hoping there would be a unanimous answer but we're even more confused. We are meant to be sending her off to my boyfriends parents house but I don't think they'll be allowed a cock due to the loud noise and them living in essex. The whole experience has made me decide to keep some chickens myself and I've ordered some books online incase his parents don't take her... in which case i'd need to get some more chickens as she is on her own and while it's cool at the moment cause we're at home all day and chill with her a lot because she doesn't like being on her own when I get a job in a couple of months she'll need some friends. Is it ok to bring another hen onto the scene? really the main thing we'd like to know if possible is if anyone can tell what breed, sex and age he/she might be? ok well... I just attempted to attach some pictures but it wouldn't let me but if you click on my profile there are some photos there and i'll be putting up more soon!
