HiI just checked back to see how your girl was doing- both hen and your sweet daughter. I skipped to last page but it seems the original hurt hen is hanging in there and her pal here has a little infection or bruising, right? Just wanted you and your daughter to know that some people you’ve never met really do care enough about your little birds to check in and see how they’re doing. Pulling for you all! Also, seems as if you’re raising a very cool young lady. I have one too- she’s all grown out there making me proud. But I was thinking about your daughter caring for this hurt hen. We all know how time consuming and mentally taxing that can be. She deserves to be Recognized for that. This is a young girl with a good heart it seems good job mama
I just got home from a long day at work and here’s an update on both hens and my 10 year old daughter; from this morning;
Rebel, (the badly injured hen) was attacked by our other hen, Heddy. But she’s actually good, she fought back. My son and daughter were able to separate both hens at the same time. Heddy did make her bleed again but my daughter quickly got the bleeding situated and I was able to clean it throughly and get antibiotics on it fast as I can.
Rewind to this evening, I came home with some cucumbers from work and both hens feasted on them. Even Rebel has been eating much more than yesterday, she’s still abit skinny but eating more. She’s actually walking around the house and making little peep sounds again. And she’s cleaning her feathers!
Our other hen had some slash wounds on her head but she’s fully healed and bruised.
I do have to give my daughter a lot of recognition for doing what I tell her to do with her hen, Rebel. Especially while I’m gone. Since she was 3 years old, she always wanted to be a doctor or a veterinarian. And now look at her, she’s going to be an amazing veterinarian when she gets older.
Thank you for checking up on us!
