Ive got a small silkie that I keep in my room. He or she poops way too much and Id like to get it used to being outside and not treated like a human baby all the time. So I keep it on my balcony. I feel bad for it because it sits by the door or in a corner. Should I go buy it a friend? Is it cold? The weather in El Paso Texas is between 60 and 30 degrees day and night. I'm going to build a small coup with a light so that should take care of that. My other question is: This chicken sounds like a broken shopping cart. Its cute, but when its alone it'll chirp as if it were screaming. I'm afraid of buying him a friend and listening to them talk to each other all day all night. This is my most important question and if anyone has an answer I hope its to this. I appreciate this community for being here. Thanks in advance.
