maybe a neighbor thought they wanted to raise chickens and changed their mind , and knew you had em so you'd know what to do with them, I've never had chicks dropped off thank heavens. other one might be theres some wild chickens in the area ,who knows. but can't help as don't see a picture attachedMy neighbor just found two chicks last night by her back gate so she brought them to me this morning since I'm the only one in the neighborhood who has chickens. Anyone have any idea what breed? Maybe ISA?
Well still no idea what breed they are but now I have three. I guess the people across the street bought their children three chicks to play with last week or so and then when they didn't want them anymore they just tossed them out in the alley. 2 of them made their way to my other neighbor's house where she found them and brought them to me. Yesterday my ring camera went off and I saw two girls from across the street shove a baby chick through my gate and then run away. Thankfully I was home so I could go out and get it before my hens killed it.
So now I have three and hope that they are all hens as I'm not allowed to have roosters. I tried to talk to the people across the street who abandoned them but they refused to answer the door. ARGH. The thing is if they had just rung my doorbell and asked I would have taken them in. I'd seen the kids playing with chicks and kept hearing peeping. They were just keeping them with no heat in a cardboard box outside and feeding them food scraps. I'm surprised the poor little things even made it a week.
