    Hi! I've posted this in the Emergency section also. I received word that a white hen, possibly a Japanese Silkie, named Pearl is at the Staten Island NY Animal Control. They say she is very friendly. This is a kill shelter, so time is of the utmost. If you know of anyone who can take her, or anywhere that she may find shelter, please call: Joann Caro, Lauren Zizza, Jennifer Waterbury or Peg Gugliotta at 718 966 3608 ASAP.

    THANKS!

    If she was a rescue, I betcha someone was gonna eat her...blech...Just the thought of the black meat turns me off...
    I'm glad she's out of there.

    It's a delicacy in some areas... my mom wants to eat my silkies! I tell her that she can only have the roosters
