S is for Salmon Faverolle

YES!! This is another post about my chickens! I am turning into the crazy chicken lady who tells everyone about her chickens and whips out pictures every chance she gets. I'm even thinking about getting a chicken purse. There may not be help for me.

The Salmon Faverolle is my chick. Her name is Gwendolyn. Gwendolyn was sick early on with some kind of weird eye/respiratory thing, but we gave her visine, neosporin in the eye, and antibiotics in the water, and she seems to have pulled through with no ill effects. I was a little worried about poor little Gwennie because the other chicks were getting lots of feathers, and she wasn't. Then someone told me that boy chicks don't feather out as quickly as girl chicks, so then I've been worried she was a boy. However, she's starting to get more feathers, and they are looking more like girl feathers than boy feathers (they're different colors). So I'm starting to feel a little more relieved and hopeful that we'll have Gwendolyn around for the long haul.

Tomorrow is the three week anniversary of getting the babies, so she's now just a little over three weeks old. Here are some pics from this evening.

Hello, Danica! I'm a crazy zebra lady, LoL. The zebra has been my favorite animal since I was very little, and by now I have almost everything in zebra print or with zebras on it. If I don't have it yet, I probably will! Except for a pet zebra. I'll probably never have one of those, haha.

Have fun with your chickens!!

Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

Hi Laura, thanks for stopping by! I think you should move to Africa, and then I bet you can have a pet zebra. :)
