    Hugging a Chicken
    This is our new hen, Nellie. She is a buff orpington..... at her last home she was being bullied/pecked by the other hens. Welcome to the rescue farm, Nellie.... whether blind or broken legged chickens, bullied or in need, we accept any pet who needs a home! (We now have a partially blind and a broken legged chicken, 2 hamsters who were left at a shelter for 6 months and a dog who has barking issues!)
    I'm just so excited i had to announce it to all you!

    Pics (the purple stuff on her tail feathers is to prevent other hens from pecking it... she lost several tail feathers at her last home.):

    Thanks! They do lay us eggs in the summer, so we have some benefit to having backyard *disabled* chickens! LOL!​

    That is wonderful of you to rescue the "disabled". She looks very happy. Very lucky to have you.
