Minnie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Minnie
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Silkie Chicken
Home: Bedfordshire, England
   This is Minnie, she's a Silkie chicken. This time of year when the warm weather comes, we say she's our spring chicken! Minnie is special because she's always first to see you in the morning. Minnie is really friendly and she follows you around and be sociable. And Minnie also loves having her picture taken, unlike the others. She likes eating leftover food like rice and pasta. She's small and fluffy, and she's pretty smart, too.

    Once, when we were gardening, we threw a worm over to the chickens and she ran so quickly to be the first to get it, that she skidded on her chin to be able to stop in time. Now, in the morning when we feed the chickens, she runs and skids in on her chin to get the food before the others. Minnie is our funny, special, fluffy little bird!
