I just had to post that my leghorn pullet that we operated on this week for an impacted crop is doing well. She's eating and pooping like a.... um.... well, like a chicken. She seems like she's eating enough for 4 or 5 birds. But the best sign of her successful recovery is SHE LAID AN EGG THIS MORNING IN HER HOSPITAL BOX!!! Woohoooo, she's gonna make it. She laid 15 days in a row, starting at 16 weeks 3 days old, and then didn't lay for over 3 weeks. Now 3 days past surgery, and she's laying again. She's carrying her tail higher than I've seen it in weeks, and she jumps to the edge of her rubbermaid tub every time I take off the top. She sits in there and cackles and clucks all day long, and is starting to pace like she really doesn't want to be in there anymore. I'm so excited!
