So cute! And such a wonderful thing you were able to do to get Solo a new family. I hope her next integration attempt goes so much better!MaiMai (the silkie) hatched an orpington egg and adopted a lonely only serama pullet.
Full Story: The serama pullet was very afraid of all chickens after seeing her sister killed. She hatched in late October. Her broody mama decided to abandon them around 4 weeks old on the same day I reintroduced them into the bantam flock. After the tragedy, poor "Solo" lived by herself in a plastic tote. I decided since seramas are so small, I would try bonding her to my next broody- or a chick if that didn't work.
After about a day Solo stopped running away from mama and chick; they co-existed. Yes, Solo was afraid of a day-old chick! There's no pecking and I'm seeing some snuggling. The little chick just started riding on mom's back. It's so cute!!!
I can't wait until the black orp grows larger than her older sister serama and mother silkie. Solo will soon have her own bodyguard the next time I try integrating her into the bantam coop.
