    I have a chicken that is a rescue found on the side of the road in a city that prohibits any livestock. I have no chicken experience but i am doing the best i can to learn everything I can to make her life even better.She laid her 1st egg yesterday so now i know it is a female. I have had Roscette for about 4 months she was not old enough to lay when she was found. We absolutely love our feathered family member.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    How nice of you to take her in!! Definitely stop by our learning center on all kinds of articles on caring for your new bird....https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Make sure to get her on some layer feed and oyster shell on the side for her. You can get both of these at the feed store.

    Good luck with your new bird and if you have any questions along the way, feel free to ask. Welcome to our flock!
