hi guys recently ive posted a post regarding my new silkie. It was given to us from a breeder who breeds for show purposes The silkie has been outcasted from its family due to it's Ears aren't being BLUE enough, Feathers/fur on its feet are too sparse & as well as the neck fur/feathers are too thin. It is apparently 20 weeks old (but im starting to think that its temperment had also played a part) The whole reason i agreed to take it, was due to the fact they are supposedly friendly and handle well with human contact. infact, this silkie (im unsure if its a Cockrel or a Pullet) Would this have an impact? The PROBLEM: She does not like being picked up. infact, she hates it. she squirms like crazy, Kicks and screeches. At first i was thinking that this could be due to anxiety from seperation & adapting to its new environment. But its not showing any improvment after 2 weeks at all. I know most people would say "well its a chicken, they arent dogs or cats...they are live stock" But thats beside the point, Silkies are renowned to be friendly and love affection above all other breeds. And im not interested in keeping any more chickens for egg laying purposes. can anyone shed some light or experience?
