The Hospital Hen Returns

A little over a year ago, Thorin Oakenshield was attacked by a hawk and badly injured. She lost the sight in one eye, half her wattle, and partial use of one wing. But to my amazement, she recovered.

Today i found her laying on the ground in the rain. As far as I can tell, she was attacked by the other hens (or to be precise, I think it was Keesha - the Sea Witch). Her wing may be broken, her head is lacerated. She does not seem to be able to move much, but she is eating cottage cheese and drinking well. We have moved her back into the Hen Hospital in my office where she is resting comfortably.

Keeping my fingers crossed for her recovery - brave little hen.
