    i just wanted to share this stroy. one day i went out to take care of my chicks and it turns out the pen was broke! luckilly they were all there and i gathered them up and locked them in a box for the moment. i went to the barn to get my tool bag and i saw my rooster(i used to free range). he was hanging by his leg on one if the rafter by a piece of string. i nearly had a heart attack! it was embedded in his foot and rapped around half his leg. it was as swollen as heck! i got him unhooked and cut the string off his foot and he made a nice recovery but he lost 1 toe and he still has a fat foot. the funny thing is, had my pen not broke i wouldn't have had to go to the barn and who knows how long he would have hung there!
