Chicken spa week

White Cochin on a chicken tractorOur White Cochin started her broodiness early this spring, and spent most of the rest of the year on one nest or another.  She barely got off the nest to nibble on some chicken feed and definitely didn't do much pecking in the grass for months.

So when her chick died, I decided that she needed some supplemental vitamins to help regain her strength.  I've been letting her run around free all week --- her spa week, I call it.  She's taken to roosting on top of one of the tractors, though she seems to prefer hanging around with a second tractor during the day --- quite a social butterfly!

Brought to you by the color white and the letter H and our homemade chicken waterer!
