We have at least one Mentally Challenged Chicken.
Yellow is her name, on account of the yellow tag on her leg.
Hmm – what to eat – newspaper or chicken feed? What to eat, my friend’s feathers or chicken feed?
Yes we have a newspaper and feather eating mentally challenged chicken.
She has now been split from the other chickens – and will spend the foreseeable future separated from her mates.
This morning we placed Yellow in a pet carrier with some food and water, and a couple of sheets of newspaper for her droppings. The newspaper is gone, the chicken food untouched.
Yellow has been banished to the shed overnight, in the subzero temperatures. The ‘Cooler’ indeed. No baseball mitt or ball for you Yellow, you’d probably try to eat it.
And no more newspaper for you either.
Plan ‘B’ is in action, more of that to come, otherwise it’ll be Plan ‘Z’ and chicken on the menu.
Update: Yellow has eaten the two sheets of newspaper used to line the dog box. Hope she enjoyed it coz that’s the last she’ll be getting.
