Dharma just came up to the house to tell me she laid an egg! (video)

After doctoring up her prolapsed vent for 2 weeks, googling like crazy and totally winging it, sticking her insides back in with a carefully disinfected, gloved hand… wow.

When she came out of the coop singing, my stomach dropped. I was afraid she would re-prolapse.

I checked her and she’s just fine. Whew! I can’t believe I did all that and it worked! I fixed it! All that work? Totally worth it!

Iodine and witch hazel… $10

Box of medical gloves… $8.33

My sweetest hen healed… PRICELESS.

The girls are such a big help.

I’m digging away the top one inch of my lawn, putting down lawn fabric, and covering it with new stone. Every bucket of dirt I bring back must be meticulously gone through for worms and other likewise tasty morsels.
