For Christmas my son is asking Santa for a white chicken. Well, finding one for sale around here this time of year was difficult and the only one that Santa's helpers could find was a while leghorn who spent her life in a cage. Her belly feathers are missing (presumably from sleeping on wire) and her tail feathers look rough. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help "Snowball" become a healthy happy bird? She is currently living in a huge appliance box in our basement (lights on in the morning and off at night) waiting to be brought into the living room under the tree on Christmas eve. Also, any suggestions on how to introduce her to our other two birds? I'm afraid that they will notice her missing feathers and pick on her. Thanks for helping.
