    Just wanted to say hello. I joined today. We've 9 chickens in the coop out back, and one cat attack survivor in the house. She's a brave chick! She lost half her comb, and eye sight on one side! She's wobby when she walks. With lots of hugs, she is eating and drinking good and trying to get used to only one eye! She is my favorite, her name is chick-a-doodle! The rest have all chicken hip hop or country names! Ie....chicky-e, chicy-whoop......and so on and on the boys went! There is one named daisy by my girl tho!

    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear you had a cat attack. Pleased to hear chick a doodle is making a recovery. Fingers crossed this continues for her.

    Poor baby, if you can keep the cat away, she should be able to survive.
