    Only had her 3 weeks now, though was frightened the first week as she seemed down, and losing some feathers, including her tail feathers.

    Though, after a week of cleaning and giving her some fresh food with her corn/pellets etc (loves chives, parsley, grated carrot, dandelion leaves), and tonic, she's picked up really well....She is so happy and that makes me happy too.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]:cd

    Relating to the feathers. I now know as reading "Practical Poultry" magazine she lost them to make room for her Autumn/Winter ones. They are coming back now... Panic over.


    At lunch time today, I went up the garden path, she saw me and done a little jump. Ah bless her... Think she's bonding with me.[​IMG]

    She looks in poor health...are you noticing any sneezing or open-mouth breathing? Sorry - not trying to be a wet blanket...

    Hmmm.....to me, it looks like she's swollen around her eyes. Maybe it's just me.

    She's a lovely girl. You could put the videos on youtube or photo bucket and post the link here?
    I'm sure we'd all like to see her!
    Chickens are never boring!
