As I got into my car to go to work the other morning I noticed a note under my wiper. It was from my neighbour saying she thought that they had one of my chooks. As it was 5am I waited till I got home from work and wandered over. We found the chook hiding under a piece of tin leaning against the fence.
What a sad sight, she was very skinny and panting badly. She wasn't one of my girls but I had a feeling that she would be. Her head was droopy as I picked her up and I didn't think she stood much chance. She has been living in my outside laundry for three days and feasting on layers pellets, grain and tonnes of water. I can't believe the change in her, so much perkier (is that a word?). I'm pretty sure that she is going to be a very special chook! I don't know where she came from but I'm glad I'm able to give her a comfortable home.
