A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
We got a call from a friend over Spring Break asking if we wanted another chicken. They had a chicken that had started roosting in the tree in their front yard. Who doesn’t want a free chicken?
So off we went with our chicken catcher (coat hanger bent into a hook) and cage to retrieve a random chicken.
We tried poking her to get her to come down but that only drove her up higher.
When no one was looking, she would come down and eat the seeds that had fallen from the bird feeder.
We finally gave up and left the cage and chicken getter with our friend. He has been researching how to trap a chicken on YouTube. It is amazing what you can find.
Meanwhile the chicken has gotten tired of being harassed and taken up residence in another tree in the neighborhood.
Hopefully she can end up at our house. She is quite a lovely chicken.
