Well, ever since Red has started laying, Fussy has been depressed. I told you all she crowed the one day. I think she needs counseling. I think she thought if this was what egg laying entailed, she was having none of it. She is the most dejected looking thing on the planet. She NEVER puts her tail in the air any more. Red snarfs ALL the treats down, Fussy likes to inspect them, look them over, then slowly slowly eat them, but if she does that...well poof, they are gone. So she has to WOLF down her treats and she gets about 1 to Reds 5. Fussy used to bully Red just a wee bit, now REd pushes her away from the food, pushes her away from the water, steps on her, crawls UNDER her to lay her egg, paces the pen, and cries and it makes my Fussy nuts as Red USED to calm her nerves and now she just makes her a maniac. I even seen Red peck at her a few times lately. I think Fussy doesnt even wanna be a chicken anymore. This was one of the most recent pics i took of her this last week, she ALWAYS looks like this anymore. A very dejected chicken. What can cheer up a chicken? I even took her and sat her in my lap and sang to her the other day, and she did perk up and even played with the towel I had on there, like she did when she was little. Poor girl. I can tell she is depressed cuz she just SLUMPS, and she used to stand with her chest out and her head up and SOME of the time, she even put her tail up. So....how DO you cheer up a chicken?
