Still a Work in Progress

Ophelia is my work-in-progress this week!

Ophelia has been in the house for about five days now and is doing very well. She's still not too active, but has been moving around a bit more each day. Best of all, her feathers are coming in very nicely!

I'm anxious to get her back outside with the rest of the flock, but it's still very cold out there and I'm not sure her new, baby-like feathers will provide enough warmth quite yet. I may do a test run in a day or so to make sure she can fly. If she can't get up into the coop on her own yet, then I'm going to wait a bit before releasing her.

I know it's crazy to have a chicken in the living room and it's not something I could handle long-term, but it's kinda nice having someone to share my morning toast and banana with.





Come join me at my other blog for WIP Wednesday ... just click Rosie's picture below.

I have a couple of hens that are molting also. The good part is that it doesn't get as cold here. It is seventy-five today but the cold is coming back tonight. I hope you have a Happy New Year.
