A Nomad In Our Yard

Recommended Posts

Young Rooster. Very friendly.

City of Madison allows up to four hens but no roosters. Guessing this poor guy proclaimed his dudeness and was let go.

Still pretty young, You could probably catch and process him as a broiler. Much older and you'll want to go to the stew pot.

I don't know.  $1.29/lb., cleaned, butchered and ready to cook.  Keep him as a pet.

He's still here, seems to know our lot lines exactly and keeps within our small city plot.

 

I'm not interested in processing this guy. We called the Humane Society and sounds like they'll take him, find a farm (or a home beyond city limits) that is interested I guess.

 

Any tips on catching him? We have a travel cat box....lure him in there with black sunflower seeds?

Dress like a chicken and shake your money maker.

They can support themselves, no need to feed them let him roam, unless he is causing damage.

 

On many of the Caribbean islands and Key West there are stray chickens running around. They are good at eating bugs and mice.

Arms out wide like you're trying to distract raptors in jurassic park, work him into a corner and gradually bring your arms close and closer u til you can grab him.

 

Try and grab so that you pin his wings against body OR go for the fit and flip him upside down and he'll go catatonic until you can hold him tightly in your arms. 

 

If youw ant to bait the cat carrier, you could use just about anything. Toss some in the grass and let him taste it. Then make sure he sees you toss some in the carrier and he should go after it.

 

Patience and slow movements are key - he's faster than you when it matters most.

Or throw an old blanket over him.

He may get eaten by a fox or coyote before too long. Would rather capture and let the Humane Society locate a home for him.

Thanks Michael, was hoping you'd chime in with some experience advice.

Fox and coyote need to eat too...

Very true. We've quickly grown to like him though.

He calmly walks around like he's been here for years. It's relaxing to watch.
