Does anyone know how to tell how old a chicken may be? My friend brought over a silkie on Monday that apparently had been attacked by a dog, she was drenched from the rain and muddy. I gave her a bath and she fluffed up nice. She is eating and drinking fine, the hole under her wing has healed, a few feathers on other wing seemed to be bleeding a little, ok this morning. She is extremely sweet and likes to sit in my lap. She doesn't walk around much, is this normal for a silkie? I have two Rhode Island Reds, one Barred Rock, one (spelLing?) Aurcona that lays green eggs and a game chicken that moved in with us New Years Day.
