Someone has come to visit our coop today. A rather quiet and starving chook. Where the heck it came from I have no idea – it was just in the pen this morning! The other girls aren’t bothered by it, and it seems to be quite at home in the coop?
A few ideas have been thrown around that maybe a neighbours dog visited the other night, and this is a anonymous apology. Maybe it escaped from a neighbours yard or one of the many trucks of chooks that drive past daily?
Where ever it came from it can stay for now. Unless it crows or someone comes looking for it. There is some suspicious looking saddle feathers back there and some pointy things that could be spurs growing too. I think it is only a pullet age, but it looks like it has scaley leg so I am off to treat it with some ivermec and vaseline.
