A couple of days ago we found a chicken in our suburban backyard. We have no idea where she came from, but she is not interested in leaving. She allows us to pet her, sits next to our cat, and pecks at the back patio door as if asking to be let in. She also follows my boyfriend (the first one to feed her) wherever he goes in the yard. She immediately took up sleeping in our partially enclosed patio on a windowsill, ironically looking in on our lightly chicken-themed kitchen. She appears to be a pullet, small in size with golden coloring, a black tail and black outlining to many of her feathers on her back. She also has some black under her wings and yellowy-pink legs. Any thoughts?
