    That is my chicken called midnight. Aged 1 and 3/4 years old midnight is a cross between a silkie, Rhode Island and maran. You have probably never heard of such a cross which makes her so special. She has a sleek body but a fluffy head. Being quite small compared to the rest of the hybrids midnight has to run in like a bullet for food which is quite something to see. However her shyness will disappear if faced by a challenger! My question to you is how do I make her more tame? At the moment I can only get within 3 feet and then she's off. It was like this ever since a chick. Catching her is difficult please help!
