    this morning on my way home from work, i was driving up a mountain road when all of a sudden i saw this black thing along the road, it was a chicken, so i turned around and caught it, i'm glad it didn't make to much of a fuss, it was in the middle of no where, there weren't any houses for miles, it had to be someone's cruel joke, it had snowed last night and was bitter cold, poor thing, thank God i had a dog crate in the car, anyway she is now in the barn with food and water, she acted like she was starved when i put the scratch in front of her, she looks like a cross of some sort, very pretty, she has been debeaked, i hate that, anyway she's happy here at the farm with the others, thought i would share my adventure:D

  8. When chickens are de-beaked, it could be a sign that someone was looking to slaughter it. You're probably that poor sole's angel. [​IMG] I'd love to see pics!
