I suppose I will have to rescue it in the AM. Need advice -- this might not even be a wise thing to do. Yes, I have chickens. It's a silkie. I saw it but it wouldn't come out from under the gazebo... it was well after dark and the bird preferred to roost than respond to me. No, I don't have silkies... wait that's a double negative .... but still I don't own silkies. I have 25 birds.... All hens. Yes, I live in the city limits.... So... Should I or not? Will the other birds never give it peace? I know I should isolate it for 2 weeks to be sure it's healthy. Then there is the challenging task of integrating the lone silkie to the flock of 25. BTW, I have 3 birds that were hatched by a broody this summer and those 3 birds are too scarred to even leave the coop.... at all.... unless I release all the chickens out to free range, then the 3 stow-aways will come out into the run and play. But as soon as the other 22 come in the run, they fly back into the coop. So I have 3 coop chickens that are pooping the coop. And I don't want another coop chicken. Anyone have any luck integrating a lone chicken with a sizable flock???? Appreciate the feed back.... THANKS!
