    Poor Miss Gretta..it is so cold outside this week so I had to bring her in to the chicken ICU and give her some extra protein and warmth!! She is approx 7-8 years old and is no longer laying..but has remained the queen of the coop!!

    Bless her heart! You know she can't be comfortable with all those pins poking her every time she moves.

    She should be good soon. My pinfeathered hen is growing them back fast. In fact, she's on my shoulder right now!
