The great chicken rescue

IMG_9265

This mild winter has given us plenty of lovely 40 degree days and much more rain than last year. As a trade off, the weather is extending the muddy season which means that the roads are slick and rutted and you best be wearing knee boots if you plan on going anywhere near the barn or hayshed.

This poor hen got herself helplessly bogged down in the muck and was pitifully flapping her mud-caked wings when Lloyd and Nathan spotted her, plucked her from her predicament and gave her a nice warm bath. Did you know you can bathe chickens? I'd heard of it, but never done it before. That's one lucky hen.
