You might remember Princess Fiona was subjected (hah!) to a bath last year. It is a suggested treatment for an egg-bound chook.
In organising the girls' new chicken feeder, Jo was observed to be not quite herself. I watched her while I was doing the washing and called Erin to conduct an examination.
Jo's much larger tummy was compared to Judge Judy's and a bath was suggested.
A warm bath was run in the laundry sink and Jo seemed quite happy to sit in the water. She was then dried off with a towel and settled in a box by the fire.
Our chook obviously felt a lot better post-bath. She tried to climb out of the box, so has been tucked up for bed- with a light washing basket cover (and towel) over her temporary bed!
