Long story short, I was at the feed store, was checking out, the two girls in front of me bought two silkies around a day or two old, they were the last two at the store. As I checked out and went to the parking lot , the girls and a older gentleman was standing beside a truck and he was screaming at the girls because the store would not take one back (strong 2 bird policy I guess) and telling them to throw one of two chicks down, they were not leaving with both. I was fuming, told him I would take the chick that you cant just throw it on the ground, anyway, I gave the idiot 5 bucks and the girls handed me one of the chicks...enter 1 Silkie chick... she is about 3 weeks old, I take her with me everywhere, she goes to work with me everyday, when I get home I let her outside for several hours while I am tending to my other girls. She absolutely hates the other chickens, and hates the grass. She doesn't like any food but her chick crumble, no treats. meal worms, table food nothing..... She prefers the company of humans and canines and occasionally she talks to Al the parakeet, when she isn't trying to peck him, lol...So my questions are: Is this normal for a Silkie? Never had one and I am a new chicken mom? Is it possible that she can be an inside chicken? Why would she not like chicks her same age? she was so mean to it, tried for a week, wth? Why doesn't she like to go on the grass? That's weird. She runs for the nearest porch or deck, anything that's not grass. I bought her a babycake forging thing and she wants no part if it? Should she like this? IF it's weird I am definitely going to end up with it. My 5 other girls, hate broccoli, field greens, fruit and meals worms, unless the worms are in one of those treat squares.
