    i have a blind hen that i have to keep separated from the rest of the flock because they pick on her terribly. but she is lonely and i would like to find a gentle little silkie to keep her company. is there anyone here in the bakersville area that has one i could buy? i would also appreciate any other suggestions or advice for keeping this hen happy & healthy. and no... i don't want to eat her!

    thanks for the thought anyway! i take her out twice a day to eat grass and scratch around a bit (though she's not very good at the scratching part!). she pretty much stays right between my feet the whole time, since she realizes the other won't bother her if i'm next to her. i'm her own personal roo!

    Looks like you're about 1 1/2 hrs away from me; IF Google got it right, you're north of Marion.

    Let me look through the flock today for a snuggly, young girl and I'll PM you with what I find.
