Happy Birthday, Dear Henhouse!

Twenty three years ago this proud mother hen gave birth to her 2nd chick.

His name is Rowan, but we took to calling  him “Henhouse” for the soft clucking noises he made when he breathed.  The culprit:  a too soft, newborn trachea, which eventually hardened up on its own.

And yes, those cheeks are for real.

Happy Birthday, Rowan!
