Ellie is sort of my heart song.
This little chicken takes up a stupid amount of my day. And I love it.
Enrichment for her (like everyone) is a necessity. She's obviously naked and to prevent her from being even more naked...we switch out/add new/alter/move around things in her cage daily. Or randomly throughout the day. All day. I am changing her environment all day...trying to emulate what she experienced in the wild.
Because she was literally flying free as a wild bird in the beginning of her own story.
Sometimes Im awesome and I concoct really intricate works of art. Other times though, I don't. This is one of those times.
Behold the paper mache symbol.
This paper mache "E" was $6 at my local craft supply store. Ive made foraging toys for the bunnies before but today I'm going basic. She's just getting the "E" for some space saving shredding fun. You'll see a theme in her cage. Paper is her thing. Ellie has no time for wood in her life.
Get it? E-asy peasy? whatever.
