    Mama my weekend started out hectic then was really sad today but got much better!! My hen's eye is gonna make it. Was able to spend some time with her today trying to figure out what all happened and I figured well can't make it any worse. I figured out her eye lids were stuck together... Stupid me I should've tried warm compresses right away but I had a little helper (dd) who was insisting she held Cinderella since she was sick!! Soo happy now. I also have a question cn you send me a pic of the brahma you have that is older?? Jw what color she is and what are you asking for her??

    Soo I'm kindda excited but also bummed at the sametime. Starting tomorrow I will be taking care of my ex bosses minagerie of chickens, duck, swans, pheasants, pea cocks, and turkeys, o and goats too for the WHOLE WEEK!! You all think you may have a lot of birds but I'm sure my ex boss beats you!! I will have to try to count them all this week just for the fun of it. Don't know if I will be able to count all the banties but I will atleast take an estimate!! Just always get nervous when he goes away cause I don't want anything to happen to any of his animals!! But my girls love love love when we go and feed all his animals. He even has a nickname for my daughter Murtle the Turtle and my 3 yr old loves joking with my ex boss (who by the way is in his 70's) like they are the best of friends!! Plus my daughter gets to ride on his tractor with me so she is excited about that!! Ok so enought of my ranting I will also try to take some pics of his different birds too for you all!!

    I am so glad you were able to save her eye!

    I will take a picture for you tomorrow of the exact bird, but they are buffs. Here is a pic.

Ahhhh y does stuff always happen to your fav bird!! Well now she is inside with her one sister hoping I can help relieve some discomfort and let her get adjusted to just having one eye!! Been feeling like I get ahead of everything them something stupid like this happens :eek:(
