Just thought I would share a cute story and maybe get some opinions. I get a call today from our elderly neighbor telling me that she thinks one of my chickens is loose and running around in the street in front of her house. Hubby, the kids and I are giving each other puzzled looks wondering what she could be talking about. My coop is almost brand new and I don't think theres any way a chicken could escape unless someone held the door open for it lol. So we take off for the street and the neighbor points out where it is. We sneak up slowly and this is what it was.... My guess is some sort of pheasant, maybe 3-4 weeks old? DD ran back to the house for a net and we caught it. It was alone and kept coming back into the street. We caught it after about 20 mins and on its one wing close to its body it is missing about an inch or 2 long row of feathers, ripped out/broken off right at the wing. But theres no sign of infection. It has some other healed battle scars but it seems mostly healthy. I am pretty sure one of the many stray cats roaming my street got ahold of it. Questions... Can I feed it chicken food and scratch grains? )I already gave it some, which it inhaled, like it was starving. But not sure if this is an ok diet for it.) Can they be put in with chickens, or will it need its own pen? Are they ok alone, or will it need a friend? Can I get a domestic bred pheasant to put with it? I've seen no other ones around here lately, and there was no sign/sound of other babies or adults in the woods. So I am guessing it is going to become a pet. Any and all suggestions are welcomed!
