Spare a thought for Chilli, the ISA Brown x Leghorn x Australorp chicken who became a blind sometime after her first birthday, possibly during Melbourne’s Xmas heatwave. Not sure exactly when or how it happened – I was having a great old time in Gelnelg, Adelaide with the family at the time, and during my weekly reports from Dad, got the news that Chilli ‘wasn’t quite right’….
What a deal. You feed them kitchen scraps, earthworms, leafy plants (Warrigal Greens are a favorite), and they eat your bugs, make fertilizer, and these really special eggs.
