    I posted about a chicken i had that was attacked and had a huge gash in her chest. Her crop was literally hanging out. me and my mom sewed her up with thread. i planned to name her fortune, but the name Big Mama kind of stuck.

    Makes you wanna sing the anthem, dont it???

    "Oh my god! its a pumpkin" haha. dont worry. i didnt know if the plant was toxic, i didnt let her touch it.

    Isnt she beautiful?

    Thanks for all the support. Im so happy. she is more than i ever imagined! i feel like a parent. by the way, im up to 11 chickens! 2 brahmas, 1 sebright mix, 1 barred rock, and 7 silkies. they are divided between a 100 sq and a 30 sq ft run. foot run! they are my babies.

    That's amazing! You actually sewed her back up?!?! She's lucky to be alive and lucky to have you to take care of her.

    She is gorgeous indeed and you and your mom are super for helping her. And yes, that first picture does inspire the national anthem! JJ

    Quote:I've got regular sutures that I use with the animals when needed. Found it at our local farm supply store. It's the kind that disintegrates so you don't have to worry about going back and getting them out.
