My chickens' vet is brilliant.

Little LottieAny change tips the flock balance but sometimes it's a good, fun thing. I had a lovely little partridge Wyandotte banty who was the only banty in the flock @ the time. I was supposed to get 2 but the breeder wouldn't sell me her sister as she felt she wasn't up to standard so I took this girl anyway & she was always right @ the bottom of the pecking order though so fast she stayed out of trouble. When I added new girls this banty suddenly found herself quite a lot higher up the pecking order & she was so delighted it was a joy to watch! She really came out of herself. Unfortunately she had reproductive issues that I'm pretty sure took her in the end. Just when I really needed a vet we went into lockdown & the vets notified us they were shut. It didn't last long but it was long enough.
You've got me remembering how Sandy flourished once she had the pullets to educate. It'll be Ivy's turn next year.
