Hope gets a bath!

Discussion in 'Pictures & Stories of My Chickens' started by fishnet1971, Nov 25, 2012.

  1. Today i took a box and cut the sides down to put some dust bath stuff in for my new girl Hope!!!!! She has not had a chance to get outside and have a 'proper' bath yet in the 10 days she has been with me, so I thought I would give her a special surprise! I microwaved the dirt to make sure it wasnt to cold for her little naked body. She really seemed to loooovvveee it!

    My DH says she looks like a 'roaster in a box'!!!!!

    Microwaved dirt? Spoiled girl. But it's good that you're taking such good care of her. What's her story, in a nutshell?

    Hehehe, she's really enjoying that bath, isn't she? [​IMG] I had a couple of pullets that I got from conditions kind of like where Hope came from earlier this year. I wished I'd had more money in my pocket so that I could take more of them home; as it was, I only got two. It makes me upset when people don't treat their animals right.
