Everyone needs a friend like Twitch 😍 she always stays with Bubbles when she is laying an egg!!🥚 But then she had an ‘oh shit!!’ Moment, because she has wry neck and anything higher than 1 inch off the floor is bloody scary, so she tucks her head underneath her until she gets rescued by the human. 😬 • • • #silkies #silkie #silkiehen #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hens #backyardchickens

Aren’t hens so sweet 😍 As much as I hate that they have to lay eggs every day, they are the sweetest little things when they make and sit in their nest! • • •

Back from our honeymoon to pick these two and the rest of our pets up, from my parents! They’ve done a good job at keeping the grass down.......or scratching it up to dirt 🙈 • • • #silkies #silkie #silkiehen #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hens #backyardchickens

Only 3 days until I’m reunited with these two 💗 also since being on my honeymoon I’ve lost over 100 followers, sorry I can’t post pictures of them every day...I’m not with them 😬😂 • • • #silkies #silkie #silkiehen #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hens #backyardchickens

Sorry for the not so pleasant photo, I’m on my honeymoon so my parents are looking after the chickens, but bubbles has got a really dirty bum. Does anyone know what would cause it and how to get rid of it? She hasn’t got worms, we sent a fecal sample off a week ago, she’s laying and is fine in herself , eating drinking etc! So hard when I’m not there to do anything and relying on my parents so sort it 😩 • • •

This is a long shot, but does anyone think that these feathers/pin feathers on bubbles’ foot would cause her to limp? It’s been 3 days and still no sign of improvement with her limp 🤷🏼‍♀️ she’s been on pain killers/anti inflammatories but no luck so far! Her feet seem clean , no cuts, no mites, no bumblefoot..... just a bad limp! 😕 • • • #silkies #silkie #silkiehen #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hens #backyardchickens

‼️‼️Need help‼️‼️ 😭bubbles is limping! She was fine a couple of hours ago and went to put the bed and she’s hobbling. I’ve looked at her foot and she hasn’t got an cuts and she hasn’t got bumble foot. When she’s held she curls her toes up! What can I do? I’m worried Incase it’s a sign of mareks disease as Mrs Brown died from it and twitch has it.... or whether it is an injury!! If it’s just an injury is there anything I can do for it? I’ve given her anti inflammatory medicine for tonight so that might help her pain. 😔 • • • #silkies #silkie #silkiehen #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hens #backyardchickens

Always have to hand feed any treats because if I put them on the floor Twitch (black one) can’t get them because of her brain disease! You can see at the end she pecks about an inch or two away from the food! Spoilt little things they are though 💗 • • • #silkies #silkie #silkiehen #silkiechicken #silkiesofinstagram #chickens #chickensofinstagram #hens #backyardchickens
