Right? Maybe it means her pain meds are really working? Spouse is texting me from the clinic parking lot and I guess she’s strutting around the carrier and preening and otherwise behaving like a normal chicken. She might be at "I don't hurt. Wrap is dumb. Why is everyone messing me up? I don't mind cage too much because bred to be farm animal"Oh, no! Naughty little bird! Hopefully she'll keep it on next time!
She is a speckled Sussex, yep! A fact I learned on here as what we pre-ordered were Bielefelders and had no reason to doubt that we had Bielefelder chicks because we received little chipmunk striped fluffs. But lo and behold, no Bielefelders grew out of those chipmunk fluff balls. They’re both pretty timid, bottom-of-the-pecking-order birds, too, and Goga especially so. Although she doesn’t seem to get outwardly picked on by anyone, if anything she seems to like the bossiest one pretty well. She’s also kind of a snuggler. I’ve watched her crowding the others on the roost bar because she wants to nestle into their feathers and they just keep scooting over until they’re all tightly crowded at the end and there’s just acres of space on the other side of little Goga while she just wants to snuggle up. I don’t know how much of this is typical Sussex personality or if I just wound up with a preciously codependent chicken.Hopefully she'll settle down and learn to live with it! She's a speckled sussex right? Little goofy birds!
