    Name: Pickles
    Age: 10 months
    Breed: Welsummer
    Special need: Crooked tail, and only has one eye, sorry I couldn't get a picture of the other side of her face, she never faces that side at me because she wants to see me when I take her picture.

    I love the idea of this and I have 2 prospective candidates.... both sadly incapacitated by Marek's disease, but I don't have any photos of them just yet. One of them is a tiny little cream legbar. She is really pretty like Pickles and looks the picture of health. but sadly she has long term paralysis of her leg. She gets about by hopping though and is very vocal about demanding her share of any treats that are being dispensed. The other is a cream legbar x RIR. She also has leg paralysis but it has come on relatively recently and she isn't managing to hop so well at the moment. I've been promising to get some photos of my girls for ages so will try to make time for a photo shoot soon.

    I think ALL my chickens could qualify as 'Special Needs'...lol !!! They all seem to have some sort of issue, be it either physical, mental or, dare I even say it, emotional.
    I'll try to post some pictures in a few days. In the meantime, you might want to go ahead and change the 'end date' of your contest anyway...February only has 28 days in it (unless it's a leap year). Just trying to be helpful! No harm, no foul...[​IMG]
