Single hen in NYC seeks home

Last week, we covered the rise of roosters turning up in animal shelters. That's because many cities, like New York, don't allow people to keep these vocal males as pets.

But today's New York Times pointed us to the flip side of keeping chickens: escapees.

A user of the City Chicken Meetup NYC posted a Lost & Found notice:

"We rescued a chicken wandering around prospect park in Windsor Terrace area- 10th Avenue and Prospect Park Southwest. Did anyone lose a chicken? Can anyone take a chicken? I don't have enough space to take her in permanently. I have photos but am having hard time attaching.
Thanks for any assistance
Helen"

Here is an image of the lost chicken in question.
