Chicken Love

February 12, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Happy February! Can you believe it? We have almost made it to spring!

We have several chickens & each & every one is special to us. But sometimes, you have those that take a super special place in your heart. Martha is one of those.

Martha is a Silver Cochin & she came to us from a place out in Carrollton, GA. She was very sick & was almost completely featherless because the other chickens she was in a run with had pecked her so bad. We used to joke that she was going to be our house chicken because we never felt that she was going to be strong enough to hold her own with the others. I was even researching chicken diapers!

Lo & behold, after several months of residing in my bedroom, we gave it a shot. To our astonishment she fit right in & even stands up to our pup who tries to eat her food! We love Martha with all our hearts.

Happy Valentines Day!
