Crazy Chicken Lady

Well, it's official. I've become a crazy chicken lady. Sure we only have 3 hens, but one of them is currently residing in our kitchen. She can't take the heat outdoors and seems so much happier inside.

She's in an enclosure with straw, food and water and extra calcium, so I think she's pretty cozy. She also gets first dibs at any kitchen scraps. You can see in this picture just how pathetic she looks and how much she needs to be indoors, right?

Her comb is droopy. Her wattles are pale. 90+ heat is no place for this chicken.

Did I ever tell you about my rooster named Squirrel? I would have let him live indoors. :)

Melissa, I don't think you did. Squirrel sounds like he was truly loved.
