Just a quick note, Blanche seems to be doing better. She is still limping, but is much more sprightly about it. She is back to sleeping on the higher perch with the other 2 girls, and is running happily around the yard. She appears to be back to more healthy weight (or maybe it really was all in my head) and is holding her own again. I talked to my sister, Row Family Farmer Wife and Momma, and she said it is possible she either was born with some sort of deformation in her leg, or maybe she was injured early on before she came to our home and she never healed properly. Either way, we love her and just want her to have a happy life (those eggs aint so bad either!)
Now she seems to have some sort of weird thing going on with her feathers. Maybe she is moulting, or maybe she just has a bad case of dandruff. Either way, I got some powder to help with this, and it is also supposed to help with mites should that be the case.
