Long story short; I bought a Silver Laced Wyandotte named her Alexis (the protector) she was so great and then 2 days later she had to be put down it was horrible!!! Tragic and sad and I was heartbroken. The man who sold her to me offered replace/refund but I declined both as its done and over with now may she rest in peace On to new chicken dubbed Ophelia (the helper) Bought her from Elverta Tack and Feed near Sacramento California. The lady who runs the place was a bit frazzled as to what chickens she actually had though all seemed VERY healthy and some were show and such. I picked out this little inquisitive one and the lady told me she was an americauna about 5 months old. I kind of got the feeling that her son mixed up the cages and she maybe didn't know who was who any more. I paid $20 for this girl and was happy to have another chicken for the coop I had build that Alexis never got to use. Please if you can help with gender/breed/age I would be grateful if not no big deal as I love her all the same, if her ends up bieng him then, well, him is getting traded back in for her since I am running an underground chicken affair over here.
