A bird in a million

Mrs Hen is a bird in a million. She was the last of five eggs to hatch out in the incubator last June. Her brothers and sister were fine, but she was born with deformed legs so was unable to walk about like them. However she does use her wings when she needs to move about.

Mrs Hen is unable to live with her family because of her disability so we take care of all her needs. At night she sleeps in a box in our kitchen with Tilly the jack Russell and during the day she lives either in the green house or when the weather is fine she goes out in the garden.

 She makes cooing sounds when she's happy and squawk's when she upset. She loves company and music.

We have grown to love her as a family pet. So as long as she continues to keep well and happy we will continue to love and look after her.


  1. That is such a sweet story. I am so glad Mrs. Hen has you for a friend. Please give her an extra ration of chicken feed for me and pat on her head.

    Thanks for the lovely words you left on my blog today, Linda. Have a grand week.
