Looked out window and thought at first that they were wild turkeys-closer look and they were 5 chickens!Two are B+W with red combs and seem to be the leaders.The other three are buff colored and only one has a comb.The ones without combs are smaller.The only place that I have seen chickens are about two miles down the hill and they would have had to cross a fairly busy road to get on this side.Talk about free ranging! Question-Do chickens have the ability to find their way back home like a dog can?I,m really worried about them.This area has a lot of predators-bear/coy/ fox/hawks/owls/fisher cat etc. I put out some wheat bran and steelcut oats for them. The only other thing I had was popcorn kernels but not sure if that is safe. I set up my old extra large dog crate and put some oats and bran inside and left the door opened hoping they would go into it and came in to find a site about chickens and voila I'm here. Went back out and they had left the yard.Hope they took the right direction thru the woods where they will hit other yards and hopefully wander home. If they do come back what is the best temp. place to contain them and how??? I have a unheated garage and an unheated shed.Also have dog kenneling-used to have Alaskan Malamutes.
