Check out this beautiful girl ❤️ she is sticking her little tongue out at me as she settles into her evening meal 🤣 I love her face and her fierce disposition. She follows me around the yard at breakfast and dinner time, cheeping for her special purée. She is thriving and it makes me so happy 🙃

My queen warrior hen, battle chicken, Magda. She is healing like a champion. I have about a week left of antibiotics for her and her wounds look better and better each day. Of course, as luck would have it, she managed to rip up part of her foot today. I noticed blood when I was doing my evening nurse chicken routine on her. So I grabbed some self adhesive wrap tape and did the same cleaning regime on her foot. I think I wrapped it pretty good too! Just another thing on the list of pokings and proddings I need to do to this sweet girl. I think she's had quite enough of me. But then again, I turn over logs for her, so there's that.

Oh, this sweet, strong warrior hen battle chicken!!! Magda has endured so much these past 10 days. But every day, her bite marks are looking better and every day she seems to be in better spirits. This evening I treated wounds and administered antibiotics to Magda and then let her out side for some fresh air with the others. I still had two more girls to treat. In two minutes time, as I was tending to Picatta, Magda managed to fully submerge herself in a dirt bath. I panicked and picked her up. All her feathers were covered in dirt and she gave me this look as if to say "really? Your gonna take this away from me too? I'm already living in your basement, alone. Let me have some joy"! So I put her down and resigned myself to the fact that she is going to do what she wants to do and sure enough she went right back to bathing. So a few feathers are caked with healing cream and dirt. So what! She seems so happy and content and nothing feels better after being in the hospital than getting into your own bath or shower, amirite? After her outdoor romp tonight I will reclean her wounds and hopefully that will be enough.

The chicken cart is complete! I tried making Gwen as comfortable as possible but will keep working on adjustments. So far, so good. #oakenhaven #oakenhavenfarmsanctuary #farmsanctuary #rescuefarm #animalsanctuary #sebastopol #sonomacounty #friendsnotfood #govegan #hospicehen #paraplegicchicken #specialneedschicken

Throwbacks to when I had my hairs dresser license and gave LH a specials treat when she has sicks. Am thinkings of doing hairs again. I’m thinkings I call my new hairs business “Eggsceptional Hairs by RuPaul.” I gives new clients goods deal! — Love, Ru
.
PS. This first video has no sounds bc for some reason Instagram picks up background movie LH has on TV and blocks for copyrights even though you can’t even really hears it. BUT Instagram is stupids in not blocking accounts that always steal pictures and videos of regular peoples. 🤬. anyways, I repost this way. Swipe for second video with sounds.

Crossley thinks there’s too much ooh-ing and aah-ing over the peachicks... lets just get back to basics and oogle over you know who 😘❤️ #Crossley #CuckooMarans #Crossbeak #SpecialNeedsChicken #HotOffTheNest

Meet Picatra, my warrior hen battle chicken. (See previous posts regarding a dog attack). This girl was making it very clear over the past two days that she wanted nothing more to do with being inside the house. She was jumping up on any and every surface she could find, even it it wasn't a solid place to land (like my house plants). So today, when the girls in the coop started their morning song at 5:45 and she started hers 10 feet from my bedroom a half hour later I decided that her and Papagena were ready to go back outside and out of my living space. Their wounds are still healing, but I feel they are healed enough to allow them to be in their element and they are much happier for it. They act as though nothing happened, and I'm grateful for that. Magda still has a ways to go. She did spend some morning and evening time outside, but is sleeping indoors and spending most of her time in a little chicken condo I pieced together for her. The wound under her wing is slow healing due to lack of airflow. I'm still administering twice daily antibiotics and wound cleaning to all three girls. It's a day at a time.

Meet Papagena (pronounced pa-pa-gay-nuh). Another one of my warrior hen battle chickens. She suffered bites on both thighs and was found hiding in the little chicken house I used 2 springs ago for Dorabella to raise Magda and Bianca. (See previous posts regarding a dog attack). Papagena is always a little high strung and skiddish so this attack hasn't helped. But she's also so sweet and is being a great patient. Poor girl is in the middle of a molt too. I'm confident she will make a full recovery. She is eating and drinking and desperate to go outside. I'm starting to do supervised field trips outside for her, Picatta and Magda. But I can't leave them unattended yet... those wounds have got to heal first. Picatta is doing great too. Madga is doing good... she's so picky with what she's eating, but she's eating... some. I went to the store and bought everything imaginable I thought she might like. I'm hoping some outdoor time will stimulate her tomorrow. To all that have been following along on this journey and sending words of encouragement and love, thank you. It really helps and is so appreciated.

Meet Madga, my warrior hen. My gorgeous, brave, tough, strong, enduring, and oh so sweet battle chicken. This purest of souls was put through the ringer on Wednesday when a dog jumped our fence into our coop zone and attacked 3 of our girls (see previous post). Madga is fighting to overcome some serious bodily damage she endured and as tough as she is, it's a long road to recovery. And no doubt, she's a scared and traumatized girl too. The first picture is her this evening sitting on my lap with her new "hair-do". The last picture (yes, it's graphic) shows how a 2 inch tall by 1 inch wide section of her neck was ripped off. As scary/bad/sad you may think it looks, the wound is healing fairly well. She also has a bite wound on her back right side, a bite on the left side of her tail and a gash under her left wing. I've been vigilant about cleaning the wounds, however, the one under her wing is healing slower because it isn't getting as much air. But no infection that I can tell! The vet gave me a blue solution called Clorohex that I dilute in water and use to clean the wounds as best I can, then I spray #vetericyn VF on the wounds. Finally a silver sulfadiazine cream to promote healing. I'm doing this twice daily. I'm looking forward to receiving some CBD/hemp oil and nano silver from my mom to give the girls to promote extreme healing and cell regrowth. Madga, Picatta and Papagena are also receiving antibiotics twice daily and an anti inflammatory once daily.

Squeaky - she’s hanging in there. Needs some extra TLC but so far she’s thriving. #backyardchickens #chickens #fresheggsdaily #specialneedschicken
