A neighbor told me a "wild" chicken was coming to her for the past 3 weeks for bread. I can't believe she is alive despite the fox, coyote, hawks, and raccoons here. She looks to be laying age, based on the fluffiness of her behind and her squat when we picked her up. She is healthy and ever-so-grateful to be with some feathered friends. I gave her layer crumbles with water-I guess this is layer mash then. So, how long until her beak grows back? The edges are blunted so I would think it will grow further. Can she just have crumbles? I'm not sure if I'll be able to provide her with mash many times a day. The others loved it and ate the rest of it, the little monsters. Any other considerations?
