Found – Plucky White Chicken 26th and Madison
2/24 I observed a chicken in my apartment building’s exterior stairwell, perhaps blown in during strong winds and rain. I fed it a few slices of gluten free bread and let my landlord know. Without being an expert, I’d say the bird was scared, but healthy and friendly as far as chickens go, in my experience.
2/25 The chicken is now in my front yard, which has a wide spaced fence, but I am concerned the bird may wander into traffic. I fed it again and called Seattle Animal Control at 206-386-7387.
I hope this post helps reunite bird and owner.
Update – 2/26. Chicken is gone as mysteriously as it arrived, and it took my makeshift water dish without saying goodbye. It wasn’t my finest tupperware, but I had set two dishes of water for her, after reading that chickens need a pint of water a day.
