    Hi all, I just wanted to share a few pics of my SPECIAL girl Missy. She is a rescue gamey-mutt banty hen of undetermined age that cannot fly or roost. During the day she spends her time outside in the run with the rest of the flock but when everyone goes to roost in the evening I bring her inside and she has her own "bedroom". My serama hen Beep-Beep comes in to keep her company at night. We all hang out at the PC while I prowl BYC! [​IMG]

    Little Missy all tuckered out from the days activities.

    How kind of you to bring her in and take care of her.

    Awwwwww. You are a good person! Missy is lucky to have you care for her.

    This is yet another thread that is inoculating me with the feeling I just may allow my two D'Uccle chicks to become house chickens.
