Monday Morning Chicken

A friend advised me (quite reasonably) that two back-to-back posts on medical ethics was a bit heavy, so here’s a picture of one of my new chickens to lighten the mood. Internet, this is Ruby the Rhode Island Red. Ruby, meet the internet. She’s only a few days old in this picture. Be nice to her: no flaming or trolls, please.

    Haha what a cute little chick. And yeah, I read those posts and the organ donor one this morning and became a bit despondent (not that that’s a bad thing in itself). Baby animals are always a good fix :)

    ps: thanks for changing the organ donor picture too, the other one was…graphic

    My wife said, “Mmmm, too much” in re the original organ donor picture.

    And I’m growing convinced that a lasting legacy of the internet will be the wide dispersal of cute animal pictures.

    Thank you for the lovely critter. We have some buff orpingtons, and they’ve finally gotten old enough to start laying. Yay!

    There. I feel much better now. Your Hadamar post, while spot on, is depressing. I hope more people are willing to recognize the slippery slope we have been traveling down at increasing speeds.
