Nashville TN. We had been preparing for chickens early spring 2021. Cleared land which took most of the spring/summer. Slowed down due to heat. We had a recent visitor who must have been reading our minds. A chicken! Asked neighbors.. No one would claim her. We no nothing about her. Age? Breed? (although we have an idea on breed) She is as sweet as can be. This is day 3, set up a temporary home for her in our shed... and will do all we can to make her comfortable thru winter into spring. So I guess we became chicken parents... prematurely. LOL Here she is

That was the plan ... we are being cautious to see if she would leave, be claimed or (hopefully not) sick. Then we would be back to 1 chicken. This is day 3 she seems fine, eats, poops, very docile and content. We are on 4 acres, she wanders but comes back to sit on the porch. Fortunately its mostly shade... and the hawks have a hard time seeing her roaming. Dont know how long to wait. Dont know if we should get another adult? or a younger one? Just dont know, we were not prepared. We were trying to be so prepared for spring... than this. :)
