So a friend of ours works at a local animal shelter and this chicken came kn. The owner said that her flock was attacked by coyotes. She was the only one that survived. It took her a while to get used to our other chicks but she gets along just fine now. Please help.

That is a Buff Silkie.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Poor thing  - silkies tend to be the ones they snatch first

I'm also amazed to find a silkie as the sole survivor of a predator attack.

 

Silkies aren't the greatest layers, although my hatchery bird hasn't done too badly. What they're really known for is being broody mommas, those ladies love to raise the babies!

thanks for the help! she was super fiesty when we got her, she would only stay in a little corner of her cage she was in. I would try to pet her and she would either run around like crazy or fly at me flapping her wings. well hopefully she will fit in with our others. we cant have a rooster where I live so thier will not be any baby chicks, unless i go to the feed store and buy more.

Buff Silkie.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And one man in his time plays many parts."
