Stripe the House Chicken
We saved this little girl when she was a day old. She survived the foul pox and has become so attached to us that she spends most of the evening perched on a shoulder while we read. She sleeps in her crate inside and is being gradually weaned to spend more time outside as a real chicken. In the meantime we have had to teach her to eat, drink and act like a chicken. She is by far the most affectionate pet we have ever had. This is her two week old photo.
