Walking Wounded

This is Agatha, the worst of of yesterday's walking wounded. See her ace bandage poking out from beneath her wing? She seems to kind of like it, which is good because she needs it. She's got deep puncture wounds on either side of her sternum and her tail is half chewed off. I was afraid of what I might find when I took off yesterday's bandages but her wounds look good (you know, for wounds.) She's dozing here but a few seconds after I snapped this shot Max (my German Shepherd) walked across her field of vision behind me and her eyes snapped open. All the girls are on house arrest until we figure out how to manage the fox threat. 


  1. Oh Agatha you poor dear. I am praying for your quick recovery. Hang in there,

  2. My friend Sheryl who took Joy's chickens lost one of her girl's yesterday. I just found out and hate to have to share bad news. Weird that the attack occurred on the same day.

  3. Thank you m'dear...I will pass along your sympathies to Agatha. She's feeling well enough to be indignant when I accidentally caught a couple feathers under her ace bandage today and they were facing the wrong way. She scolded me good for that.

    You're right...that is VERY odd about Sheryl losing one of her chickens the same day. Twilight zone-ish.

  4. Hi, I do think this is an excellent website.
    I stumbledupon it ;) I'm going to come back once again since I saved as a favorite it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide other people.
