Hello! My name is Summer and I've fallen into taking care of chickens just this week! A mystery little rooster (that the Internet tells me is a Silver Laced Wyandotte) showed up on my grandparents' front porch last weekend. No one claimed him and he wouldn't leave, so I decided to name him Odysseus and take him home with me to make sure he gets fed and watered and doesn't end up as dinner for a coyote or a victim of the suddenly falling temperatures. While I have experience with just about every other kind of farm animal, this is my first time with chickens. Right now, I'm trying to find a couple pullets/hens to help keep him busy and socialized but I'm having no luck so far. It seems that mostly people sell chicks, which I guess are kind of out of season right now but I'm not looking to raise babies. I was in a pretty bad car accident in July and my mobility is still impaired and recovering as a result, so I'm unable to put in all the extra time/money chicks would need. I'm glad I stumbled onto this site! I have no idea even where to start with bird care so it's nice to find a resource like this one to help me make sure I'm not a worse fate for Odysseus than a coyote or raccoon.
