My friend birdhousefrog has a small farm with chickens, and the legendary hen, Walkabout, may be ill. With the aid of the universe, I'm sending this get-well photo of IC 2948: The Running Chicken Nebula, from Astronomy Picture of the day.

Everything about this post enchants me. I hope Walkabout recovers.

This is so very, very cool. First I find there's actually a saint for chickens and now a chicken nebula. Wow.

And she's doing much better. When I offered her bread crusts this morning on the roost she was downright piggy, which is her normal reaction to bread crusts, blueberries, raspberries and other assorted treats.
