Keelyn, Welsh Harlequin hen

This is Keelyn our Welsh Harlequin hen. 
She is our disabled duckie.  She continues
to have issues with her legs, having broken
both of her femurs early in her adult life. 
She needs special care and most of the time
she is kept in a small enclosure within the aviary
(so that she doesn't try to walk too and keeps
her from being mated - her legs do not tolerate
the weight).  She is a beautiful sweet duckie.
Because she gets special human attention
this keeps her very high in the pecking order.
