I caught this chook which has been wandering our street for three days. Now looking for its owner, but I wondered what it was. Is it a Polish? Very small. Poor thing is missing a few toes but it can fly like an actual bird...

I hope it appreciates being taken in and given food and water. Difficult to find a flying chook's home, could have travelled from a few streets away.

Well, we live in a great neighbourhood, and we have a local newsletter (online). I put a photo of her in the newsletter and her owner claimed her. And guess what - the chicken DID cross the road. Twice. She was from two streets away.

Well done in finding her owner (who had better clip her wings!)
