Good morning folks
Fizzybelle I used to have two pet quality Silkies, sadly both have passed away now. Anyways, they were white and they sure could get very dirty in the dust bath and wet dirt after rain etc but without a bath or any intervention from me, they managed to turn a beautiful white again.
potato chip I think some people see a cute little chick, think it will be may be hush a child’s insistence that it wants a pet and be easier to keep than a puppy or a kitten. I also believe that whoever sold them a single chicken is partly to blame, especially if they knew it was going to be a single chicken.
Having said that I know of people who have raised single chickens who appear to have coped fine .. been part of the family etc … in the house, watching television, spending time with her people.
Anniebee I agree that Mindy is not quite a lone chicken and you are doing the right thing in her case .. I am sure she is happier chatting safely than being beaten up.
LuckysMum I often ask the girls “and how are my little dinosaurs this morning?”
Thanks you for the kind comments about how pretty KiKi is … I am not going to argue with that one .. when she is not doing her screeching peacock impersonations she is a cutie!
On that note .. the radio actually seems to be working
She does have a strong chickenality and now she has managed to push Blondie one rung down the pecking order, she is giving LuLu a hard time. If she manages to rise above LuLu also, that only leaves Dusty and Cilla on her quest to the top .. good luck with those two Kiki, I do not fancy your chances
