Hi there. I am new to having a Silkie chicken. She isn't full grown just yet. I have noticed that she does not roost like all the others, she does not roost at all (should I have a lower roost in the hen house for her?). She sleeps in the nesting boxes at night. She doesn't seem to flap or fly up at all. I also noticed that I can not drop her to the ground from low distances without her just flopping to the ground, where all the rest flap down gently. She seems clumsy. Maybe it is the bizarre feet she has. Who engineered these creatures anyway. Their feet seem to make them hobble along and the puff ball makes it hard for them to see. It's like something from Sesame Street or the Muppets. I feel bad for the poor thing. She has to cock her head sideways just to look up at me. She is the easiest chicken to catch in our coop though.
