New "Caption This" Photo!

As many of you know, "Victoria", the little runt of Sophie's litter had big setbacks during her first few weeks of life. Much to Dan's original dislike of having a pig in our house, she moved in with us. I carried her weak body through the door, and his perspective changed.

He set up a dog crate for her, complete with fluffy pillows and warm blankets, propping her up underneath a heat lamp with a bowl of milk in easy reach. (Just for your information, he doesn't treat me like this when I'm not feeling well... Although if he set up a dog crate for me, he and I would have words.) Victoria has since made wonderful progress, and as seen in the post below, is now back outside running around with her mom and siblings.

During her stay with us, a pretty nasty cold snap hit. It was too cold for one of our chickens (who happened to only be about 9 weeks old at the time,) to be in the barn. Granted, we had a heat lamp set up for her, but even that wasn't keeping her warm enough. So what options were I left with? She came inside too, walked into the crate and made herself comfortable in the warmest spot she could find.

I now present to you, one of the cutest pictures I have ever taken...



Let's hear your caption suggestions!

  5. If there were a blanket over them, it looks like the chicken would be saying "She's hogging the covers!"
