https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/823666/chicken-moral-question/50 Thanks so much for all your input, yes the tread did get off a little but that's just how it goes when you talk about animals. So an update: I was went down to the house three times on the last trip, I told some lady living there. (Not sure if it was the sister or who ever) but the chickens were safe in my coup. I have not seen or heard from the lady, and the hens are still in a divided section of my coup. By the end of the weekend, I will introduce them to the or hens.. Well remove the wire that has keep them apart, If she comes down down and claims the hens I will return them, But I'm done going down there. No replies are needed, and this is not a debate, but since you all responded to the first post I wanted to informed yo what has happen. Thanks so much.
