Under the Weather........

My little hens are under the weather and so am I.  Firstly, the hens are going through their yearly moult, they have shed lots more feathers than previous years and have been off their food.  Consequentely, they have lost weight and look so scrawny.  We have been giving them lots of tasty treats, and they are slowly showing signs of perking up.

I have also been under the weather; about 3 weeks ago I suddenly started feeling really dizzy, and  after a visit to the Doctor and Hospital I have been diagnosed with Labrynthitis.  It is an inner ear disorder which affects balance and vision. It is a really horrible condition and very debilitating.  It is like having severe car or sea sickness all the time. Recovery is slow, I hope and pray I get back to normal soon. I'll be back when I'm feeling better.
