Lynn, bless her heart, had a brilliant idea to send me a bowling ball sling to retrofit to support my injured cockerel, Zane. Look, Lynn! It was a stroke of genius! Its comfy and he can drink and eat and poop. DH put a concrete block in front of him with food and water he can easily reach and we'll do the same thing in the wire dog kennel when we put him back inside today. Thank you, Lynn. Cyber hugs from across the country to my very good friend.
