Aloha,
I have 2 barred rock hens that free range in my backyard. Lately a wild red junglefowl hen flies into the yard almost daily, stays all day, and flies out at night to roost. We will be moving in a few weeks and i was thinking of trying to catch her and take her with us since she doesn't seem to have a flock. Can a wile junglefowl join a flock of domestic hens?
Thanks for the input!

Just make sure you quarantine her, but if she's already been hanging around your hens it's probably too late for that anyway. I'd be wary of diseases and parasites with a wild bird, but I don't see any reason not to take her in.
