Hi! So the property we live on used to be a chicken farm. Exotic breeds. When they moved all of the chickens were left in the forest. :( Many years ago. This mama and her babies has been visiting lately. Is her breed distinguishable? Black mostly with that pretty shimmery green hue in the sunlight. Also, has anyone had success keeping "wild" chickens? Stories appreciated! We have 4 hens and not sure if they'd ever get to the point of living all together? Thanks

Pretty bird. Gray Farms is probably right, but I would probably try to tame them anyway. Maybe not pen them up at first, but feed them and see if they calm down at all. Food is like chicken magic.
