This is Ned the chicken in all her glory with her sweater for warmth. Her home made 'feet' are mismatched; one is teal, the other a light purple.

Temperatures had plummeted below normal for several days in a row in winter of 2013. Tracy Reynolds crossed the yard of her Campbell Range acreage on the southeast edge of Kamloops to check on her flock of chickens. She grew more concerned with each step when she noticed a soft bump on the cold, hard ground outside the coop.

Wendy Ross would like to see this injured crow get help so it can possibly fly again. she's worried it won't survive the winter.

This crow has survived for more than a month in Wendy Ross's Kamloops neighbourhood despite having an injured wing and not being able to fly. It climbs up this tree in her front yard by hopping up from the ground-level branches. Ross is concerned about how it will make it through the coming winter.
