I’m just seeing this now but the reader originally sent word to the PoPville Facebook page around 2pm:

“Loose chicken with green legband in RCP on trail near Peirce Mill.”

If it’s your chicken please search and hopefully recover post haste! It had been 13 months since our last loose chicken alert. And in all seriousness should you have a time sensitive message, tip or request please email me at [email protected] Thanks. And fingers crossed for this chick!
