Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend 🙂 This week has had its challenges and I am tired. Still I feel good that I can come home tonight play cards with my Grandma and blog to all my wonderful followers 🙂
Thought I would share a recent photo of the “ladies”. The “lady” that got hurt this past fall and we almost lost is on the right. She has filled out, gotten her feather’s back, and is doing well. We even think she is laying again 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
I love to know people that know how to take care of all God’s creatures!! Bless you!! She looks beautiful!!
Thank you she seems better 🙂 Blessings back to you 🙂
Thanks to your care she i has now grown into a beautiful ‘lady’
Lovely phot of her.
Thank you she won’t stay still for many photos so that is the best I have gotten 😉
Great news about your lady – especially if she is laying 🙂
Yes we hope she is we have 10 ladies and the last 2 days we have gotten 10 eggs so things are looking good 🙂
She looks very healthy, you have obviously done a wonderful job bringing her back to good health.
Thank you I have really given her some TLC, but she did a good job healing 🙂
Great picture!!! It is great to see someone who actually cares about animals the way you do. Your posts about them are always so nice. I love animals too, especially birds. What kind of “ladies” are they? My sister at one time had Rhode Island Reds, kinda look like that. Just wondering. We are thinking of getting some laying hens in the spring here, hopefully anyway.
They are Rhode Island’s… we love this variety of bird. They are harty in all weather and good layers. I have heard that you can eat them but they are only good for broilers. I am glad you enjoy my posts… I really adore animals (except snakes) and love to care for them 🙂
🙂 the “lady” looks great and happy to hear she is better too 🙂
Thank you… I am happy she is better too 🙂
Chickens are special – glad your lady is getting better.
Me too 🙂
Whew, what a stressful event. I’m so glad for you and your chicken that she healed up so well.
Me too I am glad she is better and I don’t have to worry anymore 🙂
Some people think I’m a little nutty about my girls, like when I made a couple of them little jackets so their feathers could grow back and they’d be warm … But I really do love them.
I can’t say I have made jackets, but I have gone the extra mile to make sure they get well when they are sick or hurt. I am glad you enjoy your “ladies” as much as we enjoy ours 🙂
I don’t know if you saw the girls In in their little Mickey Mouse sweaters on my blog with a pattern for them, but they worked great and were so cute. I got the idea from another chicken lover friend of mine. My other friends thought it was too funny.
I think I did see that one. I think I will leave the jackets up to you. I don’t think I would be any good at it and my hubby keeps telling me they are not pets they are a source of food (eggs). But it is a cute idea 🙂
Yea, my son’s dog killed one of out leghorn pair, Lucy, leaving us with an unmatched Ethel. I wasn’t very happy about it and he gently reminded me saying, “mom, that’s why you shouldn’t name chickens”. He could be right.
I can’t tell our apart so I can’t name them. We only have hurt girl and sick girl and now that they are better I am having a hard time tellign them apart from the other’s. We have all rhode island reds. 🙂
Well we only have 4 that we got last summer … 2 white leghorns I named Lucy and Ethel and 2 Rhode Island reds I named Shirley and Lavern. Ethel and Shirley had been pecked at by the rooster the owners had and had naked backs so telling everyone apart was easy. When Lucy got killed our son gave us one of his Buff Orpingtons, Goldie, who looked completely different. Fortunately when Shirley’s feathers grew back they were distinctly different from Laverne’s. See what happens when you lose your dog and have to resort to chickens for pets? Lol
We have two dogs and the chickens. We got chickens when we fond out it may be hard for us to have a baby so that may be crazier then getting chickens when you loose a dog 😉 I am sorry for your loss of the dog 😦
Thanks. As you can see from the post I’m still healing from that one. I pray it doesn’t end up being hard for you to have a baby at all and you end up with an animal loving little one!
Thank you it has been a two year process so far and tiring. I am trying to be hopeful this year 🙂
I pray with a group of women and one of the things we’ve really focused on is women in our church family who want babies being able to get pregnant and carry the babies full term. It’s been pretty awesome to see so many miracles happen, several that the doctors told couldn’t conceive, some that had been trying for years, others that had miscarried. We are getting major breakthrough in that area and I declare that same breakthrough and blessing over you!
Thank you we are trying, doing all we can, and then praying… that is all we can do 🙂
God is so good and more faithful than we can fathom. I was reading today that no good gift will be withheld from us! And kids are definitely good gifts. I will stand in faith with you and look forward to hearing your testimony that is now just in the making!
I thank you for your encouragement and suppot… this is a tough walk and hope our fait will bare fruit 🙂 You are so kind 🙂
