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.
