Here are some basic characteristics of a healthy chicken:-
▪Erect stance with head and tail elevated.
▪Bright red combs and wattles.
▪Brightly coloured and alert eyes.
▪Clean nostrils, without any mucus discharges from them.
▪Smooth, neat and clean feathers. Some healthy hens don't have neat feathers because of molting or over mating by roosters.
▪Joints that are cool and smooth to the touch, not swollen.
▪Weight that is typical for the type and age of the birds. For example, a good layer weighs between 1.6-2.5kg......
▪Powerful movement when struggling.
▪Scales on the legs and feat are clean and waxy in appearance.
▪Normal droppings with black and white parts. Sometimes droppings look and smell different but are still under the normal category.
▪Healthy birds eat and drink water frequently with no signs of respiratory diseases.
▪Colour of the skin is characterised for the breed and strain of the bird as well as the age and state of production.
▪Roosters will crow and mate with hens.
▪Hens lay eggs and can only stop when they are old, taking a break, molting or broody.
▪A healthy bird is active.
▪Make normal sounds and movements.......

'We come in, yes?' - Minerva and Myrtle are pushing their luck. Minerva also shat on the doormat 😩 #chickenkeeper #hensofinstagram #chickensofinstagram #hens #rescuehens #raptorsquad

Today I received a parcel that reminded me how great people are. Just as I sat hating people for the horrors they repeatedly wreak upon each other and on the world the postman handed me a package pretty as can be.

It was nothing short of timely.

Tamara is a photographer and a story teller. She also runs @leftysplace place, a sanctuary where animals who I've never met nor am I likely to meet. They changed my life as Tamara told their stories. Pinch and zoom to read a little about Lefty's Place.

I've always had a soft spot for Goblin; her friendship with DaMarsh was so genuine, so honest.

The one occasion that I ever posted a photo of a hen not our own was to invite our followers to start at the oldest post on #fortheloveofMarshy and work toward the newest. I did that because Marshy taught me so much.

The gifts Tamara has sent mean such a lot and they're a welcome reminder of kindness and generosity today.

Thank you @tamarakenneallyphotography

The chickens must have listened yesterday- 6 lovely fresh eggs this eve 😍🐔🙌🏼 #eggs #fresheggs #eggfast #eggfastday1 #chickenkeeper #ketogenic #eggfastbombshells

Besties be bathing!

Now, I don't want to count my chickens #sorrynotsorry...but...I suspect Fliss may have decided she'd rather hang with the flock than sit in the nest box.

What relationship that decision has with me telling her we are due a stellar week of luscious warm and sunny weather, I just don't know...but I am suspicious that she mentioned pinã coladas and a paddling pool and water wings. I wonder if that slide for Ivy could finish up in the pool.
