Miss Freddie Updake
Miss Freddie is doing very well. He does his chicken dance (runs around in a circle) and talks to us whenever we stop by his house. His savaged wing is mending nicely, and he is beginning to use it cautiously. Just this morning he tried to stretch it out, and then looked at it with one eye, as chickens do, as if to say … “Hey! This thing is working again!” Sometimes the tiniest and most ordinary things can lift your heart!
UPDAKE ~ 05-20-10 Miss Freddie has been identified as a Dark Brahma chicken! He’s doing well, and his shoulder feathers now almost cover his wound. The coop chickens are Game Chickens, and are as mean as ever.
