Jasmine was born with deformed toes. We were asked to help and took her to our avian specialist. After a week in the hospital her toes were straightened and repaired. When she was sent home she was too young to be unsupervised in the barnyard, so Gentle Barn Founder, Ellie Laks became Jasmine's mom and raised her in the house until she was mature enough to live outside in the barnyard with her friends. It was a long slow process to acclimate Jasmine safely into barnyard life, with longer and longer trips outside, until it was finally Jasmine who insisted on staying in the barnyard with her friends. Jasmine now loves the barnyard, has made many friends and is very popular, enjoys playing, and is so much fun to be with! Jasmine has a fully developed language and is very talkative, is very affectionate, and even though she is a big girl chicken now, she will always be Ellie's baby!
