Bessie visits the vets

We had to take Madame Boo in to the vets today. She’s had a mucky mouth for a week or two, and yesterday had quite a lot of mucus in there. Also … her breath stinks. I know, that sounds weird, but it does. Dog breath, and that’s not usual for a chook.
Anyhow, she seems to have some sort of infection in her throat, and has a course of antibiotics to take. Oh well, I’m pretty good at that. She’s pretty much finished her moult now, so she should be getting quite a good appetite, which will make this easier.
But this time we very definitely didn’t have the vets commenting on what a beautiful chicken we had … funny that!
