Alright, I have two older chooks, who hang together, and then I had a pair of younger chooks who were raised together. Today I lost my little white silkie. Now my little cochin/silkie mix is lonely. I DO have all of the chooks housed together, but the older chooks aren't fond of the little bugger. Now, I can't get away from the little mix chook. Literally... I got a shower, the chook was waiting for me outside of the shower (had come into the shower but ran back out when it got wet, lol), I went to smoke outside, the chook was at the door the whole time. I walk to get a drink, the chook is under my feet, I pause for a second and the chook is on my foot. It's absolutely precious, BUT, I'm not home much right now, and hubby isn't fond of them being out when I'm not home, plus the fact that the little chook isn't as smart about getting away from my son, lol. I tried to put her with the younger silkie mix that I'm hoping to rehome soon, but she wanted nothing to do with it. So, is the poor baby stuck being lonely while I'm away?
