Seattle weather has been so bad lately that it’s been throwing chickens out of their yards.
Meanwhile, in Ballard, a rather unexpected storm victim was recovering: a hen. Shannon Christiansen found the wet and injured animal in her neighbor’s yard.
“Our neighbors don’t have chickens and she wasn’t one of our chickens, so we knew that she was lost and we figured the storm picked her up and blew her away from home,” Christiansen said.
The friendly hen is now a guest in her guest room. She became quite a hit on social media Monday after they posted pictures of the hen while searching for her owner.
Luckily there’s a happy ending here in the comments.
