Heres a funny chicken story that happened! I was trying to put my chicken (Serena) on a tree branch. I got her on the branch.. and then she lost her balance. She started falling. And guess where she landed? RIGHT INTO A BUCKET OF OIL!! She was encased in the stuff. I picked her up and gave her a bath in the bath tub. She hated it with a passion. Chicken feathers and oil just don't mix. The smell was horrible! I soap I was using wasn't helping. I got some dwan dish washing soap and that worked a little better. That night she slept with a blanket outside. My chickens are spoiled!
