I went over to the neighbors house today and asked if they still wanted me to take their 9 year old white leghorn. She is a sweet thing...not until I put her out in the yard did I discover she had a tangled up mass of dried up poo on her bottom. Owner was rather embarrassed, but I told her it was OK I would bring her right in and take care of it. But we did leave her out to see how things would go...of course one of mine immediately pecked at her bottom... She has now had a bath, I had to also trim with scissors and has been blown dry. (Learned that all her at BYC ) She was very cooperative about the blow dryer, rather indignant about the bath! She is back outside, and has FLOWN out of the yard 3 times...my girls are very happy, she obviously wants to explore. Things are looking a bit better now, I check on her every 5 minutes and she seems to be staying in the yard now. Here are a couple of pictures. A couple of mine have tried to show her who is boss and have backed right down. Oh and she dropped an egg in the yard, I couldn't figure out what she was doing, so just sat there and watched...I'm glad it didn't break upon landing!
