Great news!  Glad to hear Chicoletta doing better, you did great.  Not sure I could have done the surgery, I'd be making a call to the Vet much to Hubby's dismay.  Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Thank you. I didn't think i could do it either but you know it wasn't as scary as i imagined. 😊 Merry Christmas to you as well.
Hi Kathy, she has been great these last few days. Happy to see me I. the morning. Preening her feathers, loving her scrambled eggs and worms. I got her antibiotic for her water. I'm very hopeful. Thank you for asking. 😀

She's doing really well! Being spoiled as a house chicken. She's healing very nicely, still laying one beautiful blue egg a day. She's becoming very demanding when she wants treats lol, very vocal and loud. I've been letting her out in the yard for supervised exercise and foraging a few times a week. My only concern now is integrating her back into the flock when she's ready. If anyone has any advice on that i'd love to hear it.

I an glad she doing well, it miggt make it easier on her if you take another hen or two out for a few weeks and have her and said hen become buddies then reintroduce both to the flock using the see and dont touch method for a week or so then let them out with the flock.
