We have a sick chicken. I tried what the feed store lady suggested and only minimal improvement. The poor girl 😦 About a week ago I noticed her crown had slumped over and she was not as peppy. When I picked her up she was skinny and when I watched her I noticed her potty was runny. The feed store lady suggested goat dewormer and … Read More Chicken sick… poor girl

Here came the sun… and now rain…

We finally had a beautiful day last Monday. It was sunny, got up to 60*, and the wind had finally calmed.
