What are you looking at? I hope it’s not the lack of rear feathers of our own Ruby, which I wrote about last week.
Because, seriously, Ruby’s feeling fine. And I was heartened by the commenters who piped up on the issue. The consensus seems to be this: If she’s acting fine, she’s probably fine. A bald behind just happens to some chickens.
Still, it’s not polite to stare.
