Wacky Word Quiz

Last week I found, Marshmallow, our Leghorn hen, sitting in the middle of the chicken run being pecked by her less than empathetic roomies (injury to her foot). For an injured chicken, that can be a death sentence. It sounds cruel, but it’s a way for the rest to keep from getting ill.

Fortunately, we have an infirmary. Well, the original coup. It’s a tad smaller, but it’s the perfect retreat for Marshmallow to heal. I’m pleased to say that she’s healing nicely and harassment free. Onwards!

Today, I bring you an old favorite. All shall be revealed in the next post. Ta-Da!
