It has come to my garden in the outskirts of Madrid (Spain) from elsewhere. The ecologist authorities don't know what it is, but they say they cannot care, because it is not a protected bird. About the size, it seems to be big, in spite of its childhood (look at the legs). Its current size is the one of an adult pigeon. It is not able to fly, but from a step to another. It is a great bustard? It is a kestrel?
The problem is that there is a cat nearby that has undoubtedly watched it, and so I have preferred to protect it in my garage and to feed it there. But I cannot care too long, and I do not know what to do.Any ideas? Would it survive if I feed it for a couple of weeks and then free it in the country? I am concerned about that.
If you could help me with a suggestion, it is very much appreciated. I apologize for the crossposting.

It doesn't look like a great bustard or kestrel...the plumage isn't right. I'd like to know what it is if you find out. Becky

OK, I'll let you know if I happen to know it some day. Someone here says it may be a pheasant!

It is not a great bustard, nor a kestrel. It's a young chicken (domestic fowl) IMO.
It will not survive if you let it go because of predators, you will need to find a home for it. Or keep it yourself, it might turn out to be a girl and give you eggs.. ;-)

I've asked around and some believe it's a sort of fowl...maybe a guinea fowl? It's a ground dweller so it's not going to fly. If you plan on keeping it, you'll need to make it a predator safe pen, or find a nice farm where they raise these fowl so it can be amidst its peers. Emotion: wink

I thought it looked like a young chicken, also. It sure looks like the ones I have around the farm here.

That's what I think, too. Fortunately chickens are easy to feed, just get some chicken feed from a feed store as well as the occasional bit of dandilion. They come in all shapes and sizes.
