Good morning everybody!
Dixie is a determined little broody. And I feel bad that I'm taking eggs away from her. She sits in the nest that everyone likes to use. She keeps the eggs covered that every one leaves until I come collecting. Her being broody and covering the eggs seems to have kept the Labrador off egg stealing. So.... I cracked open a BLRW egg to check fertility from my old man Roger. NH over BLRW would be pretty wouldn't it? The old man is getting the job done the blastoderm was there on the yolk. Give Dixie two eggs to tend to to satisfy her mommy urges...?
We drug the broody coop out of the woods into the run. I need to sweep it out. Get a beer flat full of pine shavings and new mint sprouts and set Dixie's buff broody buns with a couple of huevos.
I can't wait until one of my girls goes broody on me! I am ready!
One of my sons came down with the bullseye rash last year. I photographed its progression during the time between the doctor visit and the call I made for the appointment, to get a positive diagnosis. A lot of people have trouble getting a Lyme's diagnosis, and have to do the runaround if flareups present as other conditions, so I wanted that diagnosis on his record and she agreed. He was given antibiotics. We don't even remember pulling a tick off of him, the center of it was on his back, on a shoulder blade. I would go in to be sure, and I avoid doctors for most things, simply because if they can get a diagnosis on your record it makes future treatments much more streamlined when there is a flareup. Without the presence of the rash, I'd ask to be tested. You don't necessarily need to get that bullseye to contract Lyme's. I feel like I should assume all of us have it! We've all pulled a tick off from time to time. I hope things go well for you. :)
