Blackie’s bad leg made her come last in the race for the feed, and she has lost a lot of weight in a few days. It takes a great deal of energy to keep warm in this sub-zero weather even if you do have feathers, so that hasn’t been in her favour either.
So the Hen Hospital has been set up in the bathroom: warm, and with unchallenged access to a food bowl.
The bowl that apperently contains dog wee is actually contains water with Poultry Tonic additive. She is already looking perkier 🙂
The bathroom has an unusual aroma but fortunately not strong enough to be unpleasant. I don’t know what she thinks of the shower but she hasn’t tried to join me yet.
