    In almost new condition, too! This collapsible playpen is perfect for bringing Zane in the house when it's raining and he cant be left out in the pen, but needs company. My dog is scared of it, silly girl, just like she's afraid of everything, so he's pretty safe in there. What do you think? Did I get a good deal for $4?

    BTW, we are near the end of a 14 day stint of Doxycycline with Zane and it seems to be beating his hock infection. As soon as we are relatively certain the infection is really gone, we'll do some warm epsom salt soaks of his leg and see if we can get some movement back in it again.

    I've just got to say, that is pretty cool. Does Zane like being in it?

    Chicken playpens . . . chicken diapers . . . chickens watching TV . . . chickens with fancy saddles . . . chickens dining on all manner of culinary delights . . .

    I really love this forum. [​IMG]

    In all seriousness, though, thanks for the Zane update. Seeing him in that playpen made my afternoon. You have no idea how many of us out here are keeping up with his progress!

    I think Zane is the most famous chicken on this site! He needs his own fan club! [​IMG]

    Awww, Zane looks happy in his warm, comfy playpen. That's so sweet of you to set that up for him! [​IMG] I'm glad he's improving, even if it's taking time. You are such good chicken parents to be working so hard to heal him.

    Zane can see out the door and keeps alarming. Makes us all jump when he yells, LOL. He seems okay and calm in there, watching TV.

    I have a playpen for Bridgette too. She sleeps in it and doesn't seem to mind a bit.
    Glad to hear Zane is doing better [​IMG]
