The little black gal on the right is my daughter's rescue of the year, Lucky Lucy. Helena, spotted her immediately, sitting on her little fluffy bum, unable to get up on her feet. I insisted we did NOT need her. She'd be dead inside of 24 hours. Helena insisted she'd keep her alive, and she'd be a good friend for our other lame rescue hen, Mavis. Clearly Helena has a gift for working with animals. Clearly I couldn't say no.
I'm happy to report that I was wrong and little Lucy did indeed get lucky. Helena hand-fed her a lot of water and tucked her right down into the pine shavings beneath the heat lamp. Within a few hours she was eating and up hopping around with the other chicks.
Whether you're full on into warm weather or reveling in the warmth of a 45 degree day as we are, Happy Spring! Give yourself a few healing and meditative minutes today with the sun on your face, breathing, being, nothing more. Try this song for some beautiful accompaniment to your moments of spring renewal.
