The heavens parted and sun shone down and everything was… well, okay, it was still soggy and cold. But at least it was better-lit.
What is that perplexing, ugly object? It’s Dolly, who has lost about a third of her feathers all at once.
The poor thing is clearly miserable. All hunched up and quiet like that.
Ooh, terrible! She looks like a bad marionette.
Here you can really see the quills that sprout out, before the feathers unfold. Don’t they look uncomfortable?
I’m guessing she would not have signed a waiver to appear on the blog at this time. But you know what? I don’t care. I haven’t gotten a single egg in over a week. I had to BUY eggs from the STORE today. At least I can use them for blog fodder!
