She thought otherwise...

..."Don't move", I said, but thought, "there is absolutely no way". As I run into the house to get the camera.  

While I was feeding the animals this evening, this is what I saw.....

....Peanut Butter and Cali, just chillin out.

....posing, even.

Let me introduce you to Peanut Butter, the Wonder Chicken.

She was "off" as a chick.  She would stand in the corner of the coop like an ostrich with her head down, unable to get her balance.  I thought, her chances of her surviving the first few weeks of life.......1 in a 1000.

She (evidently) thought otherwise.

She learned to walk and run, not as fast as the others but still trying.  THEN she was run over by a car.  One leg was mangled, bleeding, in shock......I thought her chances of survival....ZIP.

She (evidently) thought otherwise. .

After a few weeks in isolation, HB decided to put her in with Cali (the Flemish Giant rabbit) and I thought there is no way that a one-legged, slightly "off" chicken is going to live with a roomie, who outweighs her by at least 10 lbs and regularly chews off her feathers. But...

She (evidently) thought otherwise!

Celebrating One Year at Buttermilk Acres

One year ago...

 ...I never thought to be celebrating one year of no running water and using a port-o-potty.  :)

How'd you do that...???

Cali evidently can get on top of the dog house but not back down!
