This is #chickelletta 2, the #darkbrahma. She is the lowest in pecking order. She gets the short end of the stick in all chicken situations... including her roosting spot. I feel awful for her. Several weeks ago she was pecked so much and the feathers ripped out of her bum by the others and major #roadrash from that rooster we had... her bum was an open wound where I could see the bone! Yuck. I had to dr her up daily for weeks to heal her (in the chicken hospital). Her feathers are finally growing back in.
You would think after getting all that special attention in the chicken hospital by me... all the handling and treats... this chicken would trust me... well, she DOESN'T! 🤦♀️🤷♀️. She also is the exact same age as Sunshine, my buff brahma and has not laid her 1st egg... while Sunshine who is also a brahma has been laying for over a month! What gives Chickelleta 2? What.... gives....
