|TWO eggs today!|
Thelma was attacked and Lucy was killed on July 7, 2013. Thelma was quite depressed until I got Patsy Cline for her to snuggle with. She also stopped laying. Actually, Patsy Cline gave Thelma a reason to live--to put Patsy Cline in her place. So, after a month, she is back in all her egg-laying glory.
Not only am I thrilled to see more eggs, I am happy for Thelma because this indicates that whatever injuries she sustained have healed well. I had resigned myself to the fact her laying days were over. Not so. Is this a sign her injury has healed sufficiently?
Now, I can return to freezing two containers of two eggs each week in anticipation of a winter slowdown in egg production!

Would you take Thelma's egg as a sign she is healed sufficiently? That no more trauma exists on her body? She is the first injured hen. Most just end up dead.
