Our three hens have had a lot more time out in the garden this week. Good for their health and good for their souls.
Kate is doing ok. She is healing. I am still quite amazed she's alive really after how bad her wounds were. By the end of today when she went back inside the coop she was looking raw again so I will put some more antiseptic spray on. Her rear feathers are still bright purple from it. She will look better when they are all replaced after her moult.
The moult is on and we are getting very few eggs. I know moulting is natural. Since Kate has been pecked and as we have only had the hens since January it is a difficult time to be confident. I think they are all ok. They seem ok. Bright eyes, bright combs.
We push on. We feed them, clean their coop. Enjoy their company. Pray for the frogs...
