This is what I do when my husband isn't home...

Yikes. Well this morning when I tended my chickies I noticed Charles Dear wasn't looking so hot. It looked like he had been mugged or something. This is what Charles Dear usually looks like...

And this is what he looked like this morning...

So, of course I brought him in and gave him a bath...

Unfortunately I found that he had been injured in his escapades. In fact he was missing a toe! Ouch. I put some Blu-Kote on it and will hope for the best.

So I then made him a nice little nest beside my computer desk with some lettuce, bread and a nice lamp to keep him warm...

Now I just have to clean this up before everyone gets home! Daaaad! Mom's been washing chickens in the tub again!

Smiles from the Farm,


  1. Hi Lisa...What a life this chick has. I'm sure he feels like a king after all his special care. What a good Mom you are. Hugs, Kathleen

  2. ROFLMAO!!! Way too funny!! It's bad when the kids tell on you!! I hope Charlie loved his day at the spa!! and looks like himself tomorrow!

  3. Ok...this was the post that got me hooked...I just have to follow now to see what other antics you come up with...too cute!

  4. I absolutely didn't know you could wash a chicken! I'm almost speechless!!!
