Hi everyone I work at a pet fish store and a woman brought in a young chicken today that she had originally bought to feed her snake. The snake would not eat the baby and it eventually grew up into what you see below. She was desperate to get rid of it and wanted to make a trade for some frozen food. We really have no use at the shop for a chicken so my manager refused. I was worried at what this woman would do with the poor little thing, so I gave her $4 (what she originally paid for the chick at a feed store) and brought it home with me in its cardboard box. This video is from when I first brought her (I hope) home and her living conditions are greatly improved now She will be going to live with a friend of mine who keeps chickens in a couple of days. I normally don't make a habit of taking in animals that I'm not at all prepared to care for, but I figured I could provide something better than what she was going back to. I am going to go to the feed store for some real chicken food tomorrow (I gave her veggies and grass and dandelions and bugs today on the advice of my mother). If you have any suggestions on how to make her brief stay with me more comfortable I would love to hear them. I realize that I don't know what I'm doing and am not prepared so please be kind. The woman claimed that shes a Rhode Island Red. I have no idea what the sex is but I really, really hope its a female. I am already horrible attached to her and have voiced my request for a chicken coop http://s42.photobucket.com/albums/e322/edema/?action=view¤t=VID_20110811_182145.mp4 if this video is not helpful then I can take more pictures tomorrow. I don't want to wake her up.
