I was going to try and post a fun chicken update this week, since I got some good pictures and there's lots to tell. Unfortunately, I'll hold off for now and hope for the best. My brother and sister-in-law's pet chicken was attacked yesterday by a dog that was running loose through the yard. He bit her back and pulled out all her tail feathers. My sister-in-law had to pull the chicken out of the dog's mouth and she's pretty badly injured, but she made it through the night with lots of ministration, antibiotics and determination. That's one tough little bird.
So, hope for the best along with me - and if all goes well, look for a chicken update or two.
