* A chum for Miss Chook!!!! Another yr-1/2 old leghorn hen named PERKY!! WHAT DO I DO?? I mean how do I check her for general health and what about BIO-SEC??? Right now, Perky is in a carrier in the living room and Chook is going outside for her breakfast. They also brought me 25# of food, a different brand than Purina!! Must be good stuff, b/c Perky out-weighs Chook by close to 6 ozs., I think. She's a bright and lively girl, and looks good, but I know I need to be careful with timing and introductions. . . I know I should know all this stuff by now, thanks to all of you-- but at the moment, I am more chicken than the chickens and can't remember a darn thing, except to wash between birds!!!! Advice, please?? I took her out of the carrier (too small) and put her in a big bin with some food/water. . .She seems content for the time being. My DH looked at her and says, "Funny, she makes the same sounds as Miss Chook!"
