    I saw them (literally) crossing the road in our neighborhood a week ago. I came back once and couldn't find them. The a second trip back found them roosting in the trees shown in this photo. There are three, one rooster, and everyone that I have talked to in the block says that "They have been here forever." and "They don't belong to anyone we know."

    What do we have here?

    Also, the house where they roost is up for sale and the new owners may not want the chickens so I may have a project on my hands soon.

    We have 5 gorgeous Jersey giants and a sixth hen one we picked up a year or so ago
