A Vera update and a thankyou.

Well, first I’m going to do the thankyou – thanks for all your nice, bolstering comments, It’s amazing how people you’ve never met will give their time to make you feel better – thanks guys :)
Thanks also for helping me believe that I did the right thing for Vera. I know she’s only a chicken, but she’s not livestock to us, she’s one of our babies (I swear, I’m going to be a crazy cat lady when I grow up, but with hens)
We let her back into the run on Saturday night, just in time to go to bed because I read somewhere that hens can’t count and they don’t notice there is one more in the morning!? Well, that never worked before, but the pecking order doesn’t seem to have changed and Vera is right back at the top. That’s her in the middle attacking everything in sight…
Of course she might be at the top because she’s ravenous and won’t let a morsel escape her!


  1. Aw I'm glad she's ok :)

  2. Thank you so much for sharing the admittedly gross details of what you had to do. I am really trying to learn about keeping hens and I want the real deal so I can make a good decision.

    Glad she's okay.

  3. I am so pleased to see her looking fit and well

  4. We have chickens too - 10! Had a horrible raccoon attack the other night and lost one of our girls =( Your blog is great just found you.
