    As much as I love pets, as clearly I do because I have a house full of them, besides the fun cuddling and petting they also increase some major drama, worry and (vet/food) expenses. sigh Poor Abby. I hope she feels better soon and some how miraculously heals from the bitchy chickens attack. I’m sure she’s loving every second she spend inside your home again. Goal accomplished there! How in the world can you get any sleep surrounded by hubby, bebe, random amount of cats on the bed and now a friggin’ chicken? Those ear plugs must kick ass!

    That is a crazy chicken there – and she’s definitely a survivor.

    One of my coworkers and his wife raise chickens. They keep a pretty close eye on them and their behavior, because he’s always coming in to work and telling stories about how this chicken or that chicken went off to freezer camp (i.e. table chicken) due to bad behavior/a look in his eye/some slight deformity/potential chicken only disease.

    Good luck Abby! Hope that vertebrae scabs over.

    Good luck Sam! You’re going to need it to eject that bird from the house again.

    Ok so you have a pet chicken who lives in the house. Aside from the shit issues, not a horrible thing. I’ve heard of a lot stranger. Even from my own babies.

    Oh gosh, honey, I am SO SORRY I’m behind on skimming my peeps’ blogs!

    Abby will be fine although I know chickens can be vicious little shits to one another. My RHR’s were beating up on my Cochin, but they finally worked out their pecking order & she was able to regrow the feathers on her butt.

    You know you can email me anytime for vet advice – remember, “Dumb looks are still FREE!” ;-)
