Black Betty (Australorp hen) Arrived 12 November 2015
UPDATE 20 July 2016:
We were very sad to say goodbye to Black Betty today. Despite immediate veterinary attention, a course of antibiotics for bacterial crop infection, a course of anti-inflammatories and a follow up visit, she succumbed to what the vet believed was a gastrointestinal tumour, with the crop infection secondary.
She had a happy 8 months of food, freedom, friendship, dust baths and love while she was here.
Black Betty came to us with Wilma, Fred and Dino. They had been abandoned by previous owner on a property which was seized by the bank. Lovely real estate agents fed them. gave them fresh water and alerted us to our plight. They have all been recuperating with us since they got here, but Black Betty and Wilma are now out with the other hens with free run of the property
