Isabelline, the Pet of the Day
Name: Isabelline
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Buff silkie bantam
Home: North Brookfield, New York, USA
   This is my pet Silkie chicken, Isabelline. She is a year old, and she has only one eye due to a birth defect, so sometimes to see things clearly she must bob her head and/or walk around in a circle. She is also very small, only about half the size of our other silkies. However, this does not stop her from being a gregarious and outgoing hen, and she will boss around chickens that are two or three times her size! She also likes people, and will eat right out of your hand. When I call her name, no matter where she is, she will come running over. Her favorite food is Japanese beetles and worms, but she will eat table scraps I bring out to the coop for her (I make sure there's nothing bad for chickens in them, or if the food is too big, I'll break or rip it into smaller, more manageable chunks). Now that I'm in college I only get to see her once a month when I go home. But whenever I call mom, one of the first questions I ask is "How is Isabelline doing?" Though I have many chickens and I love them all, Isabelline has a special place in my heart.
