Coop (in the garage) is closed up, dunno how the chicken got out. semi-urban area with coyotes. If I open door, I figure there might be a mass break out. I have it in a box now. Seems friendly. Fed it some rice.

If it’s nighttime, they’ll be looking for roosting spots. They have severe night blindness and may seek high places to roost.

Boil a hot pot of water. When boiling cut the chickens head off-a teachable moment for kids. When the chicken stops running dip it in the boiling water. L ast, pull the feathers off(pluck them). Fresh meat.

pluck, gut, cut, season and fry

Immersing in boiling water helps in the plucking process ...

Growing up my brother raised rabbits. So did his buddy 3 blocks down the street. One summer morning his buddys rabbit showed up looking for some nookie. Dad took one look at it and invited the guest for dinner.

Crush up some exlax, and sprinkle it on some popcorn. Feed it to the chicken and then take it home.

For some added fun, think up some Burma Shave type jingles:

If your chicken
has been naughty,
Chickenlax
will make him potty.

Just wait for your neighbor I suppose. Not sure how worried I would get over others that might have escaped. I’m no expert on them, but I would guess they won’t go too far, and can survive the elements for a night.

One thing I do know though.

Using a feather is sexy.
Using the whole d&*” chicken is disgusting!

I once had a tomcat that brought me a gift of the neighbors pet prairiechicken, and he didn’t hurt the bird at all. Amazing really. It was very docile.

I had to carry it and throw it back to the neighbors house of course.

Rooster or hen? (with regard to “friendly”) Rooster, don’t even think of turning your back.

Do you have any bird seed or squirrel mix? I don’t think you should feed it rice. It might swell up & make it sick. We used to feed baby chicks oatmeal, but not too much cause it can give them the runs.

And do you have a wildlife rescue where you are? They’d be the best people to give you advice.

I’ll Freepmail you the 24 hr hotline to the one NW of San Antonio if that’ll help.
It’s not a toll call.

Squeeze some Jack Daniels in an eye needle and feed the chicken first.

Some say it is an urbane legion but I heard , well read that if you feed a chicken rice they will explode. I saw the typo spell check error but it is dinner time and I don’t have enough white out because I have a 21” monitor.

When I had a chicken show up at my house she came with a stray cat. They hung out together.

Hens. The neighbors said roosters were too much trouble.

Small one of some sort.

Remain calm. She is probably more afraid of you than you are of her. Just don’t make any sudden movements and beware the pecker.

Open your door, shove the chicken out ... plead ignorance. If the chicken doesn’t come home to roost (Yea, I said that), they will get another.

It was some sort of soup mix I fed it. rice, lentils oats. it didn’t eat much, but I figure it’ll survive ‘til morning. Dam’ thing actually banged on the screen door or pecked it. I heard the noise and found it on the porch.
