Cheesie in the house

Our silly hen Cheeseball. Top; Bluestar with a doll on her back. Cheesie watches her.
Bottom; Cheesie looking thoughtful.

Cheeseball has hardly been eating or drinking for a long
time. We finally decided to take action.
First we set a towel on the mud room floor.
Next we brought in a cage and set it on the towel.
We designed a feeder and waterer.
Then we padded the floor with shredded paper because the straw was damp and moldy (Cheeseball has plenty of health problems without nasty bedding).
We brought her in and read her "Hop on Pop".
She drank some water but has not eaten yet.

Poor Cheesie.
