We have a puny chicken. I hated to isolate her because (1) they like to be together and not isolated and (2) it will be hard to put her back with the others once we’re sure she’s ok. But, we couldn’t take a chance on her being sick and the others getting sick.
I hope she gets better.
Her sisters are growing and though I haven’t a clue what they are . . maybe Rhode Island Red or “Production Red”, they sure are pretty.
The others are growing and are at that gawky adolescent stage . . not enough feathers and not enough fuzz. They’re the least friendly little critters I’ve ever seen. No matter how much I try to handle them, they panic and run into each other and into the side of the bucket every time I go near their pen. I think they’re all crazy! All I have to say is . . they’d better lay lots of big eggs because they’re never going to be pet chickens.
