Ellie Mae, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ellie Mae
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Splash Silkie chicken
Home: Arlington, Washington, USA
   This is Ellie Mae, a Silkie chicken. She came to us only a few months ago but has found a special place in our heats. Once she arrived she fell very ill and there wasn't much hope for our new pet. Most people I saw about her condition gave me little hope for a good outcome. I moved her inside to my study and with the help of my friend, and also her breeder; we manage to nurse her back to perfect health.

    She is now one of the feistiest Silkies I have. I am so glad I never gave up on her. She waits by the door for me each morning for a treat of cracked corn and will hop into my lap to enjoy it. She is the boss in the hen house and keeps all the other Silkies in line. On cold afternoons she'll come inside and sit in a cat bed by the fire and enjoy a bit of TV. She also enjoys a nice warm bath and blow dry to clean her up. She has turned out to be a great pet and I am very thankful for her. She manages to bring a smile to my face every day. I also am thankful for the help her breeder gave me, without her I probably wouldn't have Ellie Mae today.
