Hawk attack update

White Leghorn hen on a roost in the coop

It's been a tough week for the White Leghorn hen.

Today she came out of the coop scratching around like her old self.

When I saw her up and about the first thing I thought she could use is some warm scrambled eggs and Anna agreed. With any luck she'll be able to re-join the flock in a few more days.

I read in an old book on keeping poultry that in the winter they need not oatmeal or not corn meal mush (mash)...They need something hot!! Do they?

Mom --- That's a good question. I do sometimes make warm oatmeal when I'm worried about a bird, but warm scrambled eggs seem to hit the spot more. Our chickens handle the cold very well, although they do stay in the coop when it gets really wet or snowy. I think what chickens can really benefit from on a cold morning is actually warm water!
