I solved the Curious Case of the Mysterious Stray Chicken. After the humane society staff told me which address where our little hen got picked up, I quickly realized that this was the complete opposite side of town from me. I searched the property records for said address and a woman who shares my first and last names owns the house. So, they got the right name of the chicken owner but the wrong S. This explains everything. Mystery solved. For now, though, our little hen is waiting at the humane society for someone to claim her or for a new roost. Behold the bird: http://www.petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=PKPK.A1118128. Anyone need a chicken?
