Hi, new member here with what I think may be a bit of a unique situation. Let me start out by saying I have zero experience with chickens and have never owned one before. Also, I wasn't sure what category to post this in, so please let me know if it needs to be moved. A few weeks ago a random stray chicken showed up in my backyard. This was odd for a few reasons. I do not live in an extremely rural area and none of my neighbors have chickens. I'm not sure where it came from. Being the animal lover that I am, I was actually elated with joy. I put out cat food (which was all I had at the time) for the chicken and she ate it up right away. I noticed that night that the chicken left my yard just before sunset and climbed into my neighbors tree. She stayed in the neighbor's tree all night. The next morning, she was back in my yard and I fed her again. This became a routine. I went to the feed store and got a full nutrition chicken pellet for her and began feeding her that instead. I also got meal worms. I also put out a big bowl of fresh water for her. For the last 2 weeks, she shows up in my backyard early in the morning and spends all day in my back yard. Right before sunset, she leaves and goes into the same tree in my neighbor's yard for the night. She has had this exact same routine every day for 2 weeks. My husband and I were so fascinated by her after the first few days that we spent last weekend building a pretty awesome chicken coop. It's 3 ft by 4 ft. We are also going to extend it to have an added on connected run which will be 5ft by 4ft. It's going to be really nice and the coop is already done. Here is my question... how do I get this chicken into our newly built coop? We love her and want to spoil her and take care of her. Also, according to what I've read, it's really not safe for her to be out on her own sleeping in a tree all night due to the threat of predators. Some things to note are that I have not been able to pet her or touch her as of yet. The closest I've been able to get to her thus far is about 3 ft. If I try to get closer, she will start to bawk and walk away, so I dont push it because I want her to feel safe and I don't want to scare her off. Sometimes she's already in my yard before I feed her in the morning and I walk out and shake the food cup. She responds by looking at me and it gets her attention. I dump the cup and she waits until I walk away to go eat. So, she for sure at least associates me with food at this point. Any help on how to get her into the coop at this point would be greatly appreciated. Or, if I should just leave her alone and let her be a wild chicken, feel free to tell me that as well. I've been reading up on chickens a bit over the past few weeks, but like I said, I am a complete newbie. Oh, and I was able to determine that she is a Barred Plymouth Rock thanks to some of my research. Thank you in advance.
