That's such a great inspirational story, lol. May Boots she live long and prosper. I have a hen who's nine, still laying. She's amazing. Arthritic little thing, but very spunky. I wish the roosters would leave her alone, one of them pulled a big chunk of feathers out of her neck. Anyway, thanks for the well wishes. Bitsy chased another hen away from the water today, so she's still feeling ok. Just waddling a bit. I have another nurse friend who's volunteered to help, so we'll evaluate her this weekend.....I wish I had an extra couple hundred lying around, for the avian vet. But they are just insanely expensive here.
