The three girls rescued last weekend from Zandspruit (See posting from 23rd March 2010) went to their new home yesterday. They were fetched by Fiona’s parents. Again, as with Ralf, I felt very relieved and grateful that they seemed to be going to such a nice home. I am really excited to hear an update from Fiona today, on their first day and night with her – and what their names are. We specifically did not name them, so that our emotional attachment was less.
Amber and Galhinia
Amber and Galhinia, our resident chickenoids (chickens who believe they are human) were relatively gracious about opening up their garden to three new chickens for the week.
Was approached by someone yesterday for another 2 rescues. Maybe, just maybe, she will take 3 hens instead of 2.
Having expressed relief at Bella being so much better in the blog last week, she started her open mouth breathing again on Friday afternoon. Jean and I put her straight back onto intra muscular anti bio injections. So, I have been practising my amateur injections again on poor Bella. I am getting more skilled. Bella has now been on anti bios for a total of 5 weeks . I am aware that this is not good for her, but we don’t seem to be able to stop without her re gressing. I think her body is just too compromised to help fight this. I monitor Bella each day. At present I do think she is getting a relatively good quality of life, so we continue. Still adding good quantities of pro biotics and brewers yeast to her diet. Maybe a consultation with homeopathic vet?
All doing well. Petrus settling in nicely. Look forward to seeing them all next weekend.
