Puffy!!! Our 5 newest residents have 5 days left in their quarantine and then they can join the big flock! These girls came to us with scaly leg mites, frostbite, coughing and none were laying. We are happy to report that the mites are under control and their scales are growing back, their coughs are gone and all are laying again (we only point this out as it is a marker for health). This is an example of how badly "backyard" chickens can be cared for. They were provided with no safety, comfort or medical attention and were being given away "for meat" because they weren't laying eggs. Discarded because they no longer held value for humans.
Chickens are beautiful individuals and their lives should be cherished and protected.
