She thought at first it was just the echo of the other chicks and was jokingly been calling it the ghost chicken. Today he was louder and very obviously not an echo. I got to watch the Keeper try to fish him out from the top of the stalls. That did not work. Then she tried to dig him out from underneath. That did not work. She went in the tack room and pulled insulation and boards and still couldn't get to him. In the meantime, the temperature keeps rising. When I took my afternoon nap, she was still trying to pry the outside wall off of a telephone pole.
The Sire finally came out to lend some assistance. Between the two of them, they pried, pulled and propped open the wall just enough to see the rare "wall chicken". It was wedged where it could not move between two boards and a bunch of wires. The Sire held the wall and the Keeper pulled the little guy out.
So far he is doing fine. He is in the tub with another hen and her eggs. The Keeper is hoping the hen will adopt him, if not, he will be raised by the Keeper. Anyway, I thought I would share the story and show you the picture of the rare "wall chicken". Happy Trails to You!
