This is Frufru, a polish crested hen who survived the coyote massacre but came out of the battle with only one wing intact. This morning when I moved her pen in the garden so she and her other one-winged hen friend could have some fresh grass to peck at, she jumped out and went on walkabout in the garden. I went to collect her and was surprised that she can still fly...halfway. She's fast too, and zipped up and down the garden rows to avoid me. Her wound is pretty much healed up and has healthy skin all around it.

Note: The bald patch on her back was caused by her naughty rooster lover and is also growing back in.
