Calendula update

A few people have asked how Calendula is doing, so I thought I'd post an update. She is doing great. Her feathers are growing back in and she is a normal chicken in her behavior. She is still living in the house, but has been spending her days outside in a puppy playpen I have.


Here she is before I put a roof over the pen.
She has a boyfriend! Our beautiful Dusty Miller has decided Calendula is his girl. He hangs out by her most of the day. They talk through the bars but haven't been out together yet. Yarrow won't let Dusty have any of the other girls.


We are moving Calendula out to the run-in today. She will be staying in her pen out there for at least 4 more days while the other chickens get to know her. She should be joining the flock this time next week.

Oh that is so cool! Glad she is doing so well!

I secretly did not think she would make it. Great job, Mom and Logan, you have the magic healing touch.

Yay!

So glad she's all fixed up-and looking great, I might add. Better keep an eye on the "boyfriend"-that could mean trouble...
LOL

Gail, I didn't really think should would make it either. She is a fighter! She'll join the rest of the flock in a few days. She's been out there with them in a cage for a few days now.

OH I'm so glad she is doing so well! Dusty Miller needs a few other "girls", too :-)

I, too, feel lonely where we are living. We've been in Amarillo for 3.5 years and I have yet to make any real friends. I know how you feel.

I would love to have you as a friend on facebook. My fb is Amy Rose Harrett ;-)
