  • Dumpling, the feral fowl that lived in the wooded area next to Long John Silver’s of Galax and enjoyed dining on their corn and hushpuppies, now dines off a menu of berries and other treats at her new home.

    Heather Nichols of Woodlawn has adopted the chicken, who she says is adjusting well to a life of (very pampered) captivity.

    According to Nichols, she saw a post in a local Facebook message group that said someone needed to come get Dumpling, as the chicken was named by the fast food workers who temporarily adopted her.

  • Patrons of the Galax Long John Silver’s know chicken is on the menu — but one fowl outside is dining off of it.

    Dumpling, as the chicken was named by restaurant employees, eats a diet supplemented by the restaurant staff, who give her corn and hushpuppies, according to manager Joey West, who laughs a little when describing the bird. The rest of the time, Dumpling can be found scratching grubs at the edge of the woods.

    The chicken showed up around the time heavy snow hit Galax last month and has stayed ever since, West said.
