We put Vicks on her neck, which is how she got her name.......and she thrived.
She is almost as big as the rest of the hens, and while she is not hen-pecked, she is probably at the bottom of the "pecking order".
Here's the problem: she won't come out of the coop.
She is not laying yet.
But she won't come out. I have driven her out, but the minute I am gone, she goes right back in.
I watched her for the few minutes that she stayed out, and no one was bothering her. So I am clueless about what has caused this behavior. She didn't always do this. It's reasonably new, say in the last two weeks.
I could give her to my friend, who doesn't have a rooster, but I'm not sure that would even fix this.
1) Should I rehome her, in a "no rooster" environment?
2) Should I leave her alone, and let her do what she wants?
3) Should I take her to a "chick" psychologist?
The AVL is in its new place, where the Cranbrook used to be. L and I managed to move it by ourselves, taking parts off it, and sliding it through the house on a rug.
My baby blanket stash is growing.
I am very pleased with them.
They are every bit as soft as they look.
The glider that my friend gave me probably 20 years ago, or more, has found its new place, on the back porch.
It looks like it belongs there, right?
It's very comfortable.
It reminds me of being a kid, I'm not sure why.
I have fallen asleep on this old glider, more than once.
I plan on doing it again.
