The chookie is a She, and has been named Blondie. She’s currently getting picked on by Betty and Boo as they sort out the pecking order, that’s normal and Blondie is doing ok. I’ve rung the RSPCA and Animal Shelter, neither of which have had a report of a lost chicken. The local paper charges for notices in the lost and found, so if the owner wants their chook badly enough they can pay to put a lost notice in! I have to go down to the post office later, so I’ll put a notice up there and at the local supermarket.
If no one rings, then I guess we have three hens… Blondie will lay white eggs too, being a White Leghorn!
