Hello. I'm new to chickens, thank you all for all the wonderful information. I had been trying to hatch a dozen silkie eggs, and only one hatched. She was super lonely, so I went to the feed store and got her a baby chicken friend. It was a few days old when I got and twice the size of my silkie. I was gone two days and it literally doubled in size, and now she is so fat that she hardly stands up. Her feet are bigger than her, but not strong enough in the legs. She loves eating. I feed chicken food and hard boiled eggs. I'm sure that she is a meat chicken, but I'm wondering if there is anything I can do for her? Should I restrict her food? She is such an awesome chicken.
