Milly

Milly is up and about and eating well.

She let me pick her up and stroke her, so I suspect she isn't feeling quite back to normal, but she's looking OK.  She laid an egg today, which got crushed.  I'm hoping that was just a weak-shelled accident, probably resulting from yesterday's heat stress.

Fingers crossed she continues to improve.

I found an interesting tip on the Omlet Forum for dealing with heat stressed hens: wrap them in a cool damp towel.    I'll remember that next time.
