Chickens aren’t kind to the weak and sick. Ilene (she leans…thanks a lot Dad) seems to be holding her own- no sign of blood from excessive pecking, but she hasn’t been gaining weight like the rest. Due to only having one good leg (we think she has a slipped Achilles tendon) she isn’t able to make her way as easily to food and water, and when she does, she’s trampled. Time for a little TLC! Given that she doesn’t get too lonely and our dog, Diego, doesn’t eat her, maybe this will be just what she needs.
