We care for this little acreage along Highway 1 in Johnson County, Iowa. If you come by to visit you can meet a few kids - both of the two legged and four legged variety- a couple of dogs and a whole lot of chickens. And two fairly tired but happy parents.

Dolly with her SUPER stylish brace
We noticed that Dolly had crooked toes. They weren't bothering her but you can't take a chicken with crooked toes to the fair. After some research, we learned how to make her little "chicken shoes" to fix them. We formed a pipe cleaner to fit her feet then wrapped her toes with medical tape into the correct position. We choose a yellow pipe cleaner because the other chicks would peck at them if they stood out. We will probably keep them on for about a week before we check her toes again. Check back next week for Dolly's update!
