Yep...even worse than the lady with 20 cats in the house....Why you ask? Well, because my chicken had surgery today. You read correctly...surgery, complete with a little mask over her face for the anesthesia. I mean, who has surgery done on a chicken? I guess I do.

BTW - Benni is doing well right now. We don't know if the abcess removed will keep coming back since there was tissue around it. Let's hope not.

Hey a pet is a pet whether it's a cat, dog or a chicken! I think it's sweet that you care so much about him. I hope the surgery works and he's all better soon.

Awww...thank you. She's eating now, which she hasn't done much of for a couple days. So that's a good sign.

I hope she's recovers quickly..

I believe a pet is a pet.. When you take responsible of a pet, your committed to it.. I paid $2,000 for my lab to have emergency surgery.. At that time she was only 3 month old and we only had her for a week.. People thought I was crazy, but she was part of the family.. And in the end, she was worth every penny..

Will do! Dh may take her to work with him tomorrow to keep an eye on her. It's the family business, so there will be no complaints.

Dh is going to make a nest box for her in the cage, so it feels like her coop.

I agree. Dh and I decided that price didn't matter. We couldn't let her suffer. We got very lucky though. The price was 1/2 what I thought it would be.

I think there sohuld be more people like you! I love that even your hen is a pet and not JUST an animal. I get so irritated at people who think of animals as "animals" and not pets and members of the family.
I hope your little hen makes a perfect recovery!

I would have done the same thing. I hope Benni continues to do well and that the abscess doesn't come back

This is exactly why my DH doesn't want me to get chickens! I plan on having a chicken coop for eggs when we move in a few years and have more yard space, but he swears I'll have them all named by the end of the week! lol.

I hope your Benni feels better, and I'm glad to hear that the surgery was a success. My furkids are family... as is your chicken. I think it's awesome that you care so much
