Who Plucked My Chicken?
She actually looks better in this photo than she has; she's getting her pinfeathers again - you can see the little quills sticking out all over. Before she was just grayish chicken skin and a few gray and dusty feathers.
Aside from being on egg-strike for the duration, she doesn't even sound like herself. Generally, Bonnie's chatty, little burbling cluck-cluck noises (except when she lays, when she makes a noise like anyone would who pushes something that large out of an opening that small). During moult, she makes a noise like a sick, depressed cat.
I figure she's got another 10 days before she looks like herself again. And maybe I'll have eggs by Halloween.
