    Attimus you are right as rain. They day was just starting and we need to find joy in it. My friend treated me to a facial and massage. I was so apprehensive about this cause relaxation to me is floating the river and being outside... I'm not super girlie... It was amazing!!!!!!!! I might have fell asleep during it for a minute!!!! Never experienced anything like it. Just got home... Trying to tell the troops to pick up the house with little effect. Already raked... Was gonna change coop bedding but I think my soon to be mother in law is coming over to hang with me and the hens. Gotta keep family in prayer today.... Stressful time for us..... And probably not the best time for a wedding but we will make it through.... Sil mother is not doing well and needs extra assistance from her daughters... A very hard and horrible situation which makes it hard to find the strength and time to celebrate. Lack of communication... He said she said and hurt feelings always leads to a mess.... So I'm hoping I was able to quench it a bit. Hope you all have a great day and thanks for listening to me ramble.

    After a decent day of keeping myself busy and hanging with the MIL.... Ifinallyheard back from one of my best friends.... Phone tag and schedules were against us.... Come to find out that she has been in the hospital with chrones disease and has been close to bed ridden.... My heart hurts for her and yearns for her to find health again and be whole... I know she is going to push her self to come and help with the wedding.... I want to see her but mostly I want her fealing well.... Keep her in your thoughts and prayers..... The guilt of focusing on my own issues caused me to not be there for my best friend.... No she's not mad... She gets it, but I am angry at myself.

    Upon closer inspection there is a cut at her neck and torn wattle..... Poor baby girl. It's not bleeding any more. I released her back outside and she is eating drinking and playing.... Upon her release I get startled and almost fell over with her in my arms because of a stupid Gardner snake.... Ayiyi gonna wash up. Surprised I managed to cuddle and take care of her without getting blood on my white shirt... I hope it heals soon and I hope I didn't have to bandage her?!?!? Fingers crossed

    Responded on my thread but I see the picture so I'll finish up here. It doesn't look to bad. Blue kote or pick no more will help keep the other girls from messing with it. They are weird about blood for some reason. Is the cut like a scrap. Look around for something she might have got her head stuck in. Sometimes chickens can be really stupid when it comes to space

    Thank you. I will get that today. Tried looking around the yard... Free range birds. Hard to tell what they get into.

    The cut looks like an open wound on the neck... Would be stitch worthy if she were a child.

    If its that decent of a cut I would get the vetrycin spray to help keep it sterilized. Should probably keep her seperated for a little bit too. And indeed hard to pinpoint with free ranging birds, mine mostly stick to about a half acre or so and thats still a lot to go through

    Hope your friend gets better soon. I'll keep her in my prayers. Sounds like you are there for her though-so don't beat yourself up over it. [​IMG]

    Today was a busy day.... Cleaned up my girl and watched her with her flock for awhile.... They were dust bathing together and it seams like even when they were napping her four other mates surrounded her and kept her safe.... I wanted to get the recommended stuff that my bird guru Attimus suggested but just couldn't find the time... Was out running errands till 9 o clock tonight.... Ran straight to the coop and it seems as if everyone is just fast asleep in there spots and everyone is accounted for... Had to cook burgers for the boys cause I promised, it was late but my Joey helped and we had a good time cooking and laughing. Finally heading to bed a quarter before 11 pm... Which is late for this little lady. Still have my cutie pie youngest pulling at my shirt looking for cuddles and singing old 80s songs ( rightroundabyrightroundlike arecordbaby) lol and on that note, good night!!!!!!!!!! I have baby snuggles waiting
