Hi. I'm Maria. This is Lulu Lulu has a very unique story from what I can tell. We live in Saint Paul MN. Not the suburbs or anything but right in the city proper. My daughter and I had been to a garage sale and I was digging in my car for something when this chicken jumped in my car. I'm not joking, Just hopped on in. We saw no areas with coops or any other chickens out and about. Well no one has come forward to claim our Lulu. (yes we looked around and made a post in a few facebook groups for the area). So now here we are in St. Paul with a Chicken. And NO idea what we are doing. I am a frog person normally, but my 4 and 2.5 year old are in love with this bird. And of course she has some of the funniest little quirks. She follows us like a puppy, she cuddles on our laps, and well she makes commentary on my husbands personal hygiene by grooming him while preening. As you might have guess she has grown on us and we haven't fought it. We are considering keeping her. But we know NOTHING about chickens other than using our basic premise of animal husbandry (food, water, shelter, love). I am looking at getting a small coop with run attached. But before I get that far. I am hoping if anyone can tell me how on earth I tell if Lulu should be Lulu *she* or Lou *he*. Roosters are banned in St. Paul. IF anyone might be able to identify what type of chicken she is (still working on the she theory). Then I also hear that 1 chicken is not a happy chicken. Could I get away with just 2 chickens to make them happy or do I need 3? If I need 1 or 2 additional chickens how do I go about getting a single or pair of chickens? Most places online 1) they ship them (I HATE that idea) and 2) you have to order like 25 (okay I do draw the line I could at most have 3). I haven't found any resources telling me where I might buy a young chicken or two about Lulu's age (someone in my office things shes around 8 weeks, she is losing baby feathers still and has gotten a lot fluffier around her butt still). I guess help... I've been thrown in the middle a maze with no indication of which way to walk.
