    What is she??

    So my wife and I have been talking about setting up a backyard coop for years. Ironically, very seriously this weekend.

    Well a little while ago we found this chicken running around the drive-in of McDonalds. She is super tame and almost let me just walk up to her and grab her. Anyway I just clipped her and will be off to the local feed store in the AM. She has made the dog house her new home. Time to start making the coop I had previously reached.

    BTW, her name is McNugget. The people at McDonald's were trying to catch her and claimed they would cook her...

    Congratulations and [​IMG]! She looks to me like she could be a New Hampshire Red...my NHRs are very nice birds and great layers. Best to you in your chicken adventures!

    Hi Miamitj,

    Welcome to BYC! The bird portrayed in the picture looks like an ISA brown or a New Hampshire

    That's just my guess!

    Hatchery New Hampshire. She' doesn't look especially old to me, so may have some years of egg laying left.

    Update: Bought a coop for her today. I hope she likes it better than the doghouse.

    So far she has been super quiet with spunk!

    She seems like a great bird. You should get her some new flock members soon.
