    If you want to make him a friend for life give him some peanuts.
    I feed the local crows the trimmings from the meat I cut. They don't trust people easily because I do live in the middle of farming country. But they have only refused food a couple of times.

    I wonder how much you could sell crows eggs for at the farmers market.

    I think you should check your local laws. In Washington you can't keep a crow as a pet or attempt to domesticate them.
    It is a bit strange because in some counties you can kill them and others they are protected... ??

    In Alaska the limit is 20 crows a day.

    What you have there is a trans-chicken. It believes itself to be a chicken and has taken up a chicken lifestyle. From here on you will refer to it as a chicken or face the consequences. I would expect a SJW to visit you at any time threatening lawsuits, public shaming, and generally being ostracised by the community.

    Around here you can kill a crow but not a raven so you better be sure its a crow and not a young raven. Or make sure no one knows...
