RIP, Backup Chicken

Sadly, Backup Chicken was not able to recover from her infection. She perked up for a few days, but then got droopier over time, until she was barely able to stand.

Goodbye-Backup

The poor thing, we had to say goodbye to her yesterday. Rest in peace, you lovely little bird.

24 Hour Party Chickens

Led by the example of Business Chicken 2.0, other other birds have started sleeping on top of the coop. It’s a little strange.

That the photo ended up looking like a washed-out 1980s Polaroid with no work is an extra bonus.

The criminal always returns to the scene of the crime

Actually it’s a myth that criminals always come back to the scene, but in this case it’s true!

I happened to look out at the window at the neighbor’s backyard, and oh, WHAT IS THAT?

THE FACE OF EVIL
. Business chicken’s killer returns!

Actually, that’s a really young hawk
, so at best it could be the no-doubt-evil descendant of Business Chicken’s assassin. Poor pigeon.

Technically, we have no evidence about what happened to Business, but we have our suspicions.

Finally, new eggs!

The young ones certainly took their time to start laying.

Molting Is Never Easy

Hot Spare Chicken is having a really rough time with molting this year, she looked like hell this morning. I was concerned after the sudden death of the last two, so I ran her by the vet this morning.

Nothing wrong so far looks like, but they advised to keep her inside. So, well, Living Room Chicken it is, there in the carrier.

In retrospect that Great Dane-sized dog create I bought a few months back was a little much.

Coop gang warfare

Business 2.0 is a Captain Chicken of Industry. Observe as she surveys her varied interests.

Sadly, the established legacy interests of the Backup Chickens are not playing ball, and really do not want her to get into the coop. Being a self-reliant type, she just sleeps on top of it.
