    Like 'em all but Nora is sure pretty!

    Henry is indescribable! What are you feeding that boy? Is he going to eat you out of house and home?

    Thanks! :)

    Ahaha yes he has quite the following. He's very handsome yes? I can't wait for him to stop peeing every 30 minutes. That would be nice. ;)

    Samson did that for months! Sometimes, he wouldn't even stop walking to pee. Now he's a wee bit better (yes, that was an intentional pun), but we have another male dog, so it's basically a continous pee fest here.

    If anyone with some splay leg wouldn't mind sharing their wisdom, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I picked up 18 chicks from the breeder on Sunday and noticed that one of the nicest blues was limping on one leg which was held out to the side quite a bit.

    I picked up some vet wrap on my way home yesterday but as the leg seems much improved I am not sure if I should just let her be. She gets around fine, eats, drinks and doesn't get picked on.

    We have them on papertowel over shavings. The breeder had them on some type of paper that looked much slipperier.

    Should I watch for a couple days and see if the better grip continues to help her improve? Or should I hobble when I get home?
