I used duct tape to tape the neck opening snugly around her tail. Love duct tape. And I used some quilting scraps to make an extension from her collar to the hem of the t-shirt and attached that with large safety pins.
Morgan is out of the t-shirt now and after a bit more neosporin she is laying quietly on her bed. She has orders to "leave it" which means no licking. Hopefully, all will be well in the morning and she can go outside and the chickens can get out of jail.
The chickens were not happy being locked up in their pen and made a lot of noise to get my attention. They calmed down and did some sun bathing while waiting for me to come let them out. But that didn't happen.
I did throw some scratch in the pen to keep them busy, and I cut up a quarter of a cabbage and some cantaloupe for treats.
I feel so guilty keeping them locked up, but it's for their own good. I don't want the fox to have chicken dinner. Kristine counted the chickens tonight and there are still 16.
Since I was thinking a lot today about my chickens being locked up I started thinking about a bunch of chickens that get to roam free through a part of town. Click here to see a photo of chickens strolling across the street in downtown Fair Oaks, California. There is an article about the town and the chickens.
If you are going to be in the area, the Fair Oaks Chicken Festival will be held in September. Click here for the website. I've never been to the festival, but it sounds like fun.
Yep, I changed my blog design again. I thought the other one was too busy and hard to read. I'll try this one out for awhile and see how it wears.
