Don't worry, I wouldn't hurt a flea. But Jethro the silkie is really.....

She is the only one of my younger flock that won't leave the chicks alone. She chases them relentlessly. She won't let them in the coop at night. I've had it with her nonsense!

If I thought I could find her a pet home, I would. Problem is backyard birds are a rarity around here.

What am I supposed to do with her? She is also the one to chase wild birds all the time. I'm hoping she'll start leaving the chicks alone once they are bigger than she is.

How about a little bit of chicken jail? She might ease up after a few days as a jailbird.

I'm considering that. I may do that tonight. Lord knows with all the dog crates I've added to the coop as broody boxes, there's plenty of room for some chickie jail.​

Maybe she wants to be Leroy Jethro Gibbs and give them all the Denozo slap.

Mary our silkie will even chase the ducks especially if she's broody. As I've said before even I don't mess with Mary!
