Your church in the snow picture is so pretty.... How much snow did you get???? It was still snowing after Thanksgiving... did it ever stop in between then and this weekend? It really is nice to look at... but I am just getting too "old" for dealing with snow anymore.... I love to look at it....from inside a nice snug warm house.
And... I hadn't mentioned... I have a rooster in the house. For 4 days now??? 7????
Anyway, in some miraculous way, he got a bit of net around his foot (miraculous since there isn't any net in the chicken pen). And then... with the net on his foot he tried to jump down from the perch and got hung up.
He dangled for hours before we found him.
We brought him in... he was doing the "frozen up, I wanna be dead, but I am not yet quite there" thing.
We warmed him up by the fire... then put him on cardboard in the kid's bathtub.
Still not dead...
So we dribbled some warm sugar water into him. Waited 5 minutes.... etc. Got him eating and drinking a bit.
Kids wanted to shower... put rooster on floor of bathroom....
Then we decided he might actually live... and put him on the bottom of the empty parrot cage on cardboard.
By morning... he clearly wanted to live...
Anyway... he is still with us.
He isn't in obvious pain, so it must not be a break, just a bad sprain.
He has now gotten up to squatting... but not yet a full stand.
I am worried.... last time something like this happened...it took the hen SIX WEEKS before she could leave the tractor and go back to the flock.
