This week has been really intense for me and my girls. Sadly, I lot Clementine all of the sudden and I'm still quite in shock. I tried my best, but nothing I did seemed to help. I have decided to share some of my experiences. I also had to give my first chicken bath ever, and it was better than I thought - my Florentina had an egg literally glued with poop to her rear feathers. Thank goodness I noticed rather fast. I have had cockotiels in the past, and I know some birds really enjoy warm water. Florentina was really relaxed as I cleaned her rear feathers. I got to hair dry her too. I enjoyed the time with this little girl. She behaved 100% better than our kitties when we give them a bath. And she was out and about in a jiffy. I want to share also some pics of my girls when they were just babies. How much fun they are! And how much I will miss my Clementina (the one on the right) In this picture I was just testing the height of their perch. In this picture you can see Enriqueta (Plymouth Rock), Clementina (Brahma) and Florentina (Buff Orpington). They all have grown to be big chickens. Here are the girls a little more grown... This big girl was Clementina. She was a delightful girl who liked to peck and play. Here are the girls chilling this summer while I mowed the lawn. Here they are also perched under the garden table. How convenient! And here are the girls enjoying their coop. These have been the most fun 6 months ever.
