Crooked Little Layer

Apr

The Crooked Little Hen deposits one of her lovely football-shaped blue eggs here every day near the back door. It’s handy, if I can get to it before Casper! (She lays the PRETTIEST eggs of all.)

    Maybe when the hosta gets larger it will camoflage her nesting site and give you a better chance of egg retrieval! :chicken:

    Ellie picked up eggs like that when she first came here and I told her to drop it and she had never picked up another. There could be hope for Casper. Do you suppose some chicken wire in the corner where only a hen could get in and out would work? A small amount would not look too bad and still protect the egg.

    Rose, Coco is doing well, it’s just that they still think she needs the splint and she can’t come home with the splint on.

    No egg dying necessary at your house, eh? I just love the crooked little hen. :chicken:

    What a sweetie for delivering breakfast to the back door!
    Just so long as she doesn’t try to provide breakfast in bed – that might get a wee bit too cozy!

    Too think they dismissed this hen as unworthy due to her beak deformity. Well, she sure showed everyone! I am glad she’s got a good life with you.

    Catray44 I agree with you. This little hen sure is lucky. I like her she makes me smile when I see a story or photo of her. :)

    Thank you for the update on Coco Suzanne, hope she’s soon healed enough to come home – she’s got a lot of changes to catch up with!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
