Carmen the chicken eats from a spoon

Carmen eating from a spoon

I have been feeding Carmen by hand for a week. One time I made the mash too soupy for me to pick it up and put in her mouth so I tried holding the spoon under her beak and she started eating. Hooray for that! It is very hard to feed a chicken who doesn't want to eat.

Carmen is definitely improving. She looks fat in the video but it's just the way she is standing and holding her tail down. She's really still only feathers and bones. She walks around a little, although shakily, and is eating a lot now.

The video is sloppy − I was trying to feed her, take the video, and keep her from falling off the table all at the same time.
