Lady Silkie-Rescued Hen Makes a Full Recovery
Lady Silkie arrived at Chicken Heaven On Earth unable to walk and with multiple health issues due to poor living conditions in her previous home. She was the only bantam chicken in a flock of standard sized breeds. She arrived crippled and with little hope for survival but survive she did.
Lady Silkie's First Day at Chicken Heaven On Earth
After getting a nice warm bath and blow dry, it is time to examine her to see why she cannot walk and falls over sideways when she tries to. She sits way back on her rear like a human would with her legs sticking straight out. Update: After her recovery she no longer sits like this. Scroll down to see her recovery progress videos.

Lady Silkie Getting Her Bubble Bath
Lady Silkie seems to enjoy her long bubble baths and soaking her feet in warm salt water. She seems much happier now. Of course, being a rescued chicken she gets quite a bit of attention. She responds lovingly cooing and making purring sounds when she is happy.Scroll down to see how much she loves coffee and check out her progress as she learns to walk again.
Lady Silkie After One of her Physical Therapy Sessions
Lady Silkie never gave up the fight. She wanted to walk and it is obvious in this video that even though she was struggling, she has what it takes to get well and the next two show just how great she did. Lady Silkie's First Week

Turns Out Lady Silkie Loves Coffee
Lady Silkie helped herself to my coffee I had set on the ground so I could hold her up as she struggled to relearn how to walk. Check her out in the next video as she has learned to walk and made new friends.
Lady Silkie Made New Friends-Her Size Friends
It wasn't long and Lady Silkie was showing signs of being lonely for other chickens. Once she learned to walk again in the front garden, she would go to the fence where Lady Frizzle and Mr. Snowie play during the day. It became obvious they wanted to all be together. I put her in the pen watching Lady Frizzles reactions closely. Lady Frizzle was brought here after a brutal skunk attack and she survived it with round the clock care. Mr. Snowie has been with us many years now. He was also a rescued chicken who made a full recovery and Mr. Snowie & Lady Frizzle had their first baby chick-Lil' Snowball. Now Lady Silkie doesn't have a silkie man rooster of her own but Lady Frizzle doesn't seem to mind sharing Mr. Snowie. Here they are in their nighttime and rainy day pen.

Chicken Heaven On Earth Rescue Sanctuary Needs Your Help
We are currently in need of feed, supplies, medical care for rescued chickens, dogs, cats, and other animals at our sanctuary and an expansion so we can purchase a larger farm. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. We don't keep them in tiny cages like most traditional animal shelters do. All of the birds and animals at Chicken Heaven On Earth are free range on almost 2 acres after they are vetted (dewormed, neutered, spayed, or caponized and parasite free) in a farm environment. Payments can be made securely via Paypal.
