I can't remember if I shared here or not (it seems like I shared everywhere else), but a couple weeks ago, my CL rooster was attacked by several small terriers while protecting the rest of the flock (VERY hero). He flew out of his paddock and lured the dogs out of the yard and into the driveway. I was convinced he was dead from the number of feathers in the driveway, but he actually was alive, with only scrapes and relatively shallow bites, but missing LOTS and LOTS of feathers - plucked halfway to dinner.
AFTER (day after attack):
He is inside and doing extremely well, healing nicely, and feathering back in. Living like a king with his hydrotherapy. He's gonna get so spoiled... (See photo of him being blown dry, which he LOVES):
Meanwhile, as soon as he was injured, I ordered an incubator and started collecting eggs. Seven days after setting them, 15 of 16 are developing (1 was infertile). So I thought I'd show some VERY YOUNG baby CL pics.
