Silkies! If you ever want a pet chicken---- this is the breed! Someone gave us one, a white one which we named Veronica. We couldn't put her in with the laying hens cuz they'd peck her to death so she had the run of the place.
She decided that when it started to get dark she had to come inside, running back and forth outside the kitchen patio door. So plaintively that we finally brought her in, put a plastic cover over a small table in the kitchen, put a large basket with a handle on it and an old towel under her nether end.
She would stay there all night and never move. If I was late getting up I would hear her plunk down on to the kitchen floor and I'd find her pacing back and forth at the door wanting to get out!
She was a delight but sadly a neighbor's dog got to her and killed her!
