Well I couldn't catch her (it's a her right?) but she's there again this morning. I don't have any cracked corn or any of that but can some ground tortilla or tostadas do? It's corn. How about whole grain waffles?
>>2051897 OP, get some carrots, use a cheese grater to grate them up, and try feeding that to your chicken, also, you can try feeding the chicken thawed out frozen peas, or peas from a can. You have broccoli? Just take a knife and scrape off all the little green buds into a bowl and leave that out for the chicken.
Alternatively, you can pick out the seeds from watermelon, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, squash etc. etc. etc. that you have in your kitchen. But I would google all of that to make sure it's not poisonous first. Since I remember someone telling me a long time ago that peach pits and apple seeds are mildly toxic to herbivores. And the smaller the creature, the more effect it has. (obviously a human/deer wouldn't be hurt, but a chicken might)
And if all else fails then in the meantime you can feed the chicken oatmeal, as long as it doesn't have any sugars or anything mixed in with the oats.
Just go to walmart/local store and buy a large container of steel cut oats.
But eventually you're gonna have to feed your chicken a more nutritious diet that contains a source of raw protein in it.
>>2051897 where do you live? unless you live somewhere that there are wild chickens running around it belongs to someone else. also mine love oatmeal and mashed potatoes. that's not ideal food just scraps i sometimes give them in addition to corn feed and oyster shells.
>>2053133 My neighbors have chickens, and a few other people around this city, so it might belong to them, but i asked around and they all say that's not their chicken. It might have been somebody elses but they may not really care anymore. It's shy though, I thought chickens were supposed to be more social. Will it die if I don't get another chicken?
>>2053149 Get some kind of container. Fill it half full with table scraps. Go outside and shake it at the same time ever day and dump it on the ground. It will start anticipating the food and wArm up to you
>>2053149 Just give it time and don't chase it. It will learn to come to you for food and eventually settle in. It does not need the companionship of another chicken though it would be nice but not necessary. As far as what to feed it, just about any table scraps are fine despite what some may say. My great grandfather on down raise chickens. Free range chickens and they ate just about anything and did just fine.
>>2053814 Of course she is going to scratch in the best places she can find bugs. Mine will tear up my wife's flower gardens every chance they get. Makes me laugh..pisses off the gardener though. >>2053832 A friend daughter won a baby chick at one of those road side fairs. Its fully grown now and she dresses it up put it in a baby carriage and strolls it around. It gets baths and blown dry. Try and get that chicken to leave her side other than when she leaves for school. It doesn't even know its a chicken. Both happy as can be.
