My littlest chick, Fanny, had some dirt packed in a crevise underneath her eye yesterday. At first, I could not tell what the heck it was for the life of me, so put some eye ointment on it to soften it up. So a little while later, I brought her in the house as she screamed for her sisters,(I felt so bad). I put her up on the counter and put on my glasses to have a closer look. I stroked her underneath her chin, and low and behold, she sank down onto the counter and started to coo. So I got out the q tips and gently rubbed off the caked- in dirt next to her eye. She lowered her head and brought up her eyelid so I could get at it better. After she was all cleaned up, she opened her eye and looked at me, as if to say, "Are you done?" So I brought her back out to the coop, and she ran as fast as she could to her spaghetti treat. Jeez, my kids aren't even that good!!! Way to go Fanny!!! It was just so interesting, I had to share!
