    Thx! I'm gonna try to post a pic, it's so cute!! My husband heard no food or water for 3 days but I don't have a clue what the heck that's all abt. How do I water her without endangering her?

    No clue what breed yet. Possibilities are endless. My inventory- Hens- barred rock, mixed dark breed, silkie, leghorn, ringneck bantam, and a red hen of some sort. Roos- silkie, jersey giant.

    Did you buy it? Why just one? They do better in a group.

    [​IMG] I am sure she would love a chickie friend too. She would probably be happier. Also, how many watts it your heat bulb? Be careful not to overheat her. Good luck!
