Aseptic Technique?

Remember the " muddy coloured hen"?
Well the old gal is going from strength to strength
Everyday she comes into the kitchen to have a bullying injury on her vent cleaned
And will stand quite still and nicely for the whole procedure to take place
Dabbing a cut on a hen's arsehole on the kitchen table eh?
Chris will have a fit!

  3. Love the video! How sweet she is and has such a good caretaker. What Chris doesn't know won't hurt him :)

  5. Maybe she should move in with the dogs?

  6. I hope she is careful enough not to get too close to a pot.

  10. She just may be setting herself up outside to get all this special attention! Smart hen!

  11. What the eye doesn't see and all that.
    Think that photo of you in bed with the four of them should definitely be made into a card.

  12. I used to love my original 10 girls wandering in the large farmhouse kitchen that we used to have, I didn't love it quite so much when they started dust bathing outside and then coming in and shaking out all the sandy soil from under their wings under the table.

    I walked in one day and the kitchen looked like a beach!!

  13. What a handsome bird she is!
    If ever Chris finds out that you've been tending to her back end you've only got to tell him that you're practicing for when he might need the same treatment.

  14. I love how you put up these "Chris will have a fit!" posts, guaranteeing that he'll find out about it. See, if you wait and tell him in person, then you get to watch his eyes roll around in his head.

  18. I'm washing 17 chickens in my kitchen sink this week, in preparation for a poultry show this weekend. I have an 11 year old bantam hen who lives in a large cage in the den all winter (and still lays eggs and raises babies outside in the summer). Chickens in the kitchen seems like such a proper thing, to me. And kitchens are so easy to clean, it's not like there's permanent damage. And, if someone shows up while I have chickens in the house and is offended by that, screw them.

  19. The animals who've had close calls and come back seem to keep a special place in our hearts, do they not?

  20. My first thought was, "He's got a live chicken on the kitchen table!!!" I really feel for Chris. The man's a saint.

    But then I watched the video twice. Such a sweet chicken...

  21. I've dabbed a few vents in my time - some of them on (and under) the kitchen table too. H.I. would have a fit!

    2. Just had to vent, didn't you, Tom?

  22. It's ok. I know you have plenty of Clorox! You probably have the cleanest house in the village!! She seems to love you, especially since you saved her. If I lived in between you and Auntie Gladys, I would be a happy girl. Fresh eggs and fresh scones and lots of dogs to hug!

  23. I wonder what Willy Dunne Wooters would say if he stopped by and found me in the kitchen with a hen. Considering I don't keep chickens, I guess he'd be quite surprised.

    Love,
    Janie

  29. At least you put kitchen paper down -I am guessing Chris was not around to help.

  30. Love that hen sound! She is 'clucky' to live with you!

  31. I see on the table a pair of gloves sitting in what looks like a bowl of fruit. If you wore those while doing the procedure on the hen I'd be more worried about Chris finding out that he is eating tainted fruit!

    Just found your blog a few weeks ago and I just love your stories, thanks for the giggles.
