a Chicken story...
I mentioned in a past post that we have chickens...
We're fond of our ladies very much! The snow this month was their first snow experience. They were not sure about it, and it took them 3 days or so to come out of the coop. The day they did come out they were very unsure, but were tired of being cooped up so they braved the white fluffy surroundings.
One of our ladies was a bit stressed out and had trouble laying an egg. It broke inside of her. We googled what to do to help her. We found soaking her in warm water would help. So that's just what we did. She was more unsure of this than the snow, and you can tell by the photo below she was not too happy about it. We have 3 cats in the house and they were very curious too.
I really do not know if this was necessary, I could not tell that anything changed. But we were afraid if we didn't do something we might lose her.
After a long soak, we dried her off and kept her inside until she was completely dry.
She has been fine ever since. Laying eggs daily.
Our chickens love shiny objects. They go after my ring any chance they can get.
We really enjoyed the snow. We might get a dusting later this week, it might just be ice too. Whatever it is, stay warm, stay safe as we bring in a new year!
