    Today was so nice and i had nothing to do so i went fishing this morning.. and the river is right down the road from my parents house so i got my things and my bike an went fishing..
    i caught three 30inch carps!! [​IMG]

    so after i caught the three carps i got all my things up cuz i had to bring the fish back to my parents and while i was ridin my bike through the path in the woods i saw this light brown thing in the bushes so i stop an got off the bike an walk to the bushes and it was a Chicken! a RIR mix with leghorn Hen and she was so nice.. i though she would run from me but when she saw me i started talkin to her sayin ( come here girl it's ok ) an she came right to me so i grabed her up an since i had her now i had to walk all the way home with the bike and fish..lol

    she must have been hungry cuz soon i put her in our brooder pen she went straight to the food

    i'm going to keep her at my parents for a week..and put up flyers if no one comes up in one week for her she's mine! and will stay at the farm house with all the others [​IMG]

    I bet thats the first time you caught a chicken while fishing. I hope no one claims her. She'll make you a nice laying hen. Good Luck with her.

    Wow! You just had all kinds of luck today, didn't you?? I wonder if she got out or if someone dumped her? Congratulations on your find! Sounds like a beautiful chicken. Hope you post some pics!

    Nice double catch there! Carp and chicken! One of the things I love to do with carp is scale them and stuff them with a pine nut and currant stuffing and slap them on the grill. I usually melt butter and spread it along the skin with some seasoning and it comes out juicy and tasty! The only downside to carp is the amount of bones.

    Make sure not to get to attached, since there may be a owner out there. But before you hand her over you need to have them describe the chicken first.
