Sorry your chickie is not well, its awful when our animals are poorly but you sound like quite a hen expert. My gran always believed in lighting the fire if creatures on the farm were sick, cats, dogs, lambs were all wrapped up cosy and placed in front of it. Fingers crossed for Oxo who is getting the very best love and attention.

Thanks for your thoughts Jenny. i hate it when animals are ill because they just can't tell you what they feel like and you can end up feeling powerless watching them get worse and worse.

My aunt used to wrap up cold animals and put them next to her range in baskets. If they were baby animals, they were wrapped in towels and actually put IN the range (door open of course!) for extra warmth. Nothing like coming down for your breakfast and seeing a confused live lamb in the bottom oven!
