I power washed the barn floor yesterday. And cleaned Big Roosty's window where he hangs out watching for hawks and anything that moves. He is acting like a kid who just got glasses and can see for the first time!
I have a Hen inside getting over sour crop. No idea how she got it...but she did. On Sunday night, I was starting to get worried because she continued to look weaker and weaker by the hour. I found an article online mentioning to give them red wine. It was about 10pm and I said to my husband "I'm going to run and get some red wine" He looked at me kinda funny, then reminded me it was Sunday. Crap, thats right Indiana! So then I said, "Are there any bars open?" Of course by now he was asking me why I wanted to drink so badly. LOL I told him it wasn't for me, it was for Penelope.
So here is how you know you love your chickens so much , that you are willing to go to a bar, on a Sunday @ 10pm, order a glass of red wine for your chicken.(I don't even drink red wine) My plan was to sneak it with an empty syringe full home in my purse. I thought surely if they ask me what I was doing I would have told them it was for my sick chicken. I'm sure they would understand!
Turns out no bars close enough were still open. We tried to find one that was open, but the GPS on my phone sent us somewhere totally different! Anyways...I got back home feeling helpless and decided to try ACV and did the trick...well that and getting as much water as I could in her and massaging her crop a ton...oh and some Kefir...she is not too fond of the Key Lime Pie flavor.
Today she is doing so much better! She is at the back door sun bathing and preening! One happy chicken momma!!!
