chicken chronicles- shirley post injury

Shirley is coming along after the toe missing incident reported in this post. She is one tough bird and seems to have fully recovered. Its hard to see in this photo but this was the best photo I could take of a chicken let alone her talon. Infection has been kept at bay and it seems her body did what it was supposed to. She had one more application of triple antibiotic ointment but to be honest it probably stayed on her maybe 10 minutes before the bandage and ointment was removed. She had a few special treats of greek yogurt and kale to keep her bird spirits up. Time will tell if we are out of the woods so to speak, but so far so good.
