Nate here. Though my writings here are being eclipsed by those of our intern, I thought I should shed some light on some new developments. We have recently received a "generous" donation of twenty-one-and-a-half specimens of Gallus gallus geriatricus, or Hell's Neck Vulture Chickens. Most of the hens, either on account of advanced age or the ministrations of their fellows, are missing most of the feathers on their heads and necks. In a few cases the plucked area extends down to the tops of the wings, and one is missing a tail. Not a single one of them is completely outfitted as nature intended.
All that said, our Farmer in Chief is an expert in geriatric health with years of experience, and has made their recuperation a priority. I am concerning myself with their survival and the retention of what sanity remains them. They will be sharing space with our current four hens and single rooster, which will require some modifications to the chicken house. Imagine fitting a Japanese capsule hotel into a shotgun shack and you'll get the right idea.
Must run. Best of luck in all your endeavors, Hard Earthers.
P.S. Photos of the new chickens to follow soon.
