My husband, (a city boy), came in from our barn with a little fuzzy bird in his hands this spring and asked me if it was a chicken. : ) She appeared out of nowhere and none of our neighbors have chickens so it will be an eternal mystery where she came from and how she made it to us alive. We always talked about getting chickens so that got us started and now we have 4. Raising one from that age makes a lot of difference though, she is more like a dog. The others are getting friendlier by the day and it has been such fun!
