Quick Louise Update

I’m not sure these two would be considered the best post-surgical companions.

Louise looks wonderful today, despite yesterday’s unscheduled outing. She’s moving freely about in her stall and aisle – no sign of pain or swelling. Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

When I gave my chickens away, I was left with three roosters. One prefers to live alone, but these two adopted Louise. I kept them closed up for the first ten days following her surgery – didn’t want chicken poop anywhere near those incisions. But today I let them out.

Within a minute, they’d found Louise and perched on her wall. You’d think they’d at least eat breakfast first.

One of them sat on her butt for a while, but that was after my camera shouted, “Replace battery!” and shut itself off.

But first I got a quick photo of Lucy, because she’s so darn cute.

Lucy is tired of the confinement too. And there’s nothing wrong with her that can’t be cured with diet and exercise.

  1. Your post reminded me of a childhood incident, when I was in a village at a subsistence farm neighboring my grandparents’ farm. When my grandpa and I walked into the yard, this wizened old black rooster ran up to me and started pecking he heck out of my ankles. It was painful. I looked at my grandfather and said: “Aaa! Grandpa!” and he replied: “Don’t hurt him! Don’t hurt him!”–meaning that _I_ shouldn’t hurt the rooster. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, Louise is one fine-looking lady, and makes me wish I were a horse. The pics are great. Thanks for the update.

  2. Animal friendships are so strange. After a few weeks of ‘what the hell is it?’ my cats have decided the new puppy is ‘theirs’. I just love watching them all together. ๐Ÿ™‚
