CG, I'm so sorry to hear about Little Bit. Your post had me in tears. I hope as the days go by that it gets a bit easier. What a wonderful friend you've had over the years, I'm sure it was hard to say goodbye.

CWS, Myrtle sounds like a hoot! Loved your story, it made me smile.

She's a very special hen. Makes me laugh almost every day. She comes to the house and asks to come in--goes to the fridge and expects a bit of cheese. She is also the reason I don't eat chicken very often. I feel guilty eating chicken!

I've created a monster. Shreddy is really liking going outside now. He wants to go outside just about every time I step out for a smoke and often wants to stay out for quite a while. He likes drinking rain water from different puddles. I guess the flavour of water with mud at the bottom differs from water with various kinds of leaves at the bottom or nothing in particular at the bottom. Most of the puddles are on tarp.

Enjoy his joy!

I'm thinking of getting Myrtle one of these (custom ordered, I have to measure her).

Purple FlightSuit | Avian Fashions

I think she'd look very nice in a purple flightsuit when going for rides in the car with me...just a thought. And once I have one, I can use it as a pattern to make more outfits for her. She'd probably look silly in the bunny ears...

She definitely could use a Hoodie for when she wants to stick her head out the window--to protect her ears. Chickens are not on the size chart, but I emailed the company and have the # of the person who sews (and designed) the flightsuits, so can special order one for her. I was thinking a small duck size would be the size, but I have to measure her from her chest to where her tail feathers start...should be fun. I can visualize her strutting around in her flight suit...

Myrtle: What's that? A long worm?
CWS: It's a tape measure, stand still...
Myrtle: Looks wormy to me, let me have it...
CWS Stand still! don't peck at the worm, er tape!
Myrtle: Why?
CWS: So you can be fashionable.
Myrtle: Sounds fishy to me.

It rained this morning and replenished Shreddy's puddles, but hasn't rained since and they are drying up. Poor boy is so disappointed that only the one in this pic still has enough water to drink.
