OK... so general consensus is to dump the eggs. So darn conflicting! LOL. I guess I will go and look at the drug in question first and decided from there. I can mark the boxes they go in, and may decided that they are fine for myself and John to eat, but feed the store eggs (BLAAA!) to the kiddos and ma. We will see.
Mice... I just chucked several dead mice from my front yard. I have a wonderful summer out door cat. She'll chase the mice down, and kill em... then leave them all over the yard. The chickens... they don't even bother with them when they are dead. Just walk around them. I guess they like their meat fresh or cooked. HAHAHAAAHAA. Picky chits.
Mr. Fluffers is hanging out under the bushes where they always hang out. He is still very under the weather, but he will not let me catch him. He is getting up on his own to eat and drink, so this is a good sign. Yesterday I really did think I'd be burying him today. I am not sure if its the antibiotics, but I do think that poultry drench is one hell of a chicken life saver. I wonder if I had had it when Vanna suddenly got ill and when the unnamed pullet got ill, if that would have helped them. Also... the sav a chick sure didn't work. Well anyway. I will continue to keep my fingers crossed that the big galoot recovers completely. I know some people think that I am a nut for carrying about my roo so much, and some are not. BUT any rooster who is gonna take on a juvie coon, be so good to his girls, and keep the flock managed as well as he does, well hell, then he deserves the best that I can do for him also. AND he never threatens people, or my kids. That makes him a roo with traits that are worth passing down. Like I said, how lucky I have been to have good boys.
My hose broke... I hope it rains. I guess tomorrow I will have to get a hose repair kit, OR I will have to get a new hose. I can't water my veggies adequately right now. UGH!
I picked a cucumber off the vine... It was a very weird color. Very solid, but the green was off, and some of the areas looked a bit rusty (?) colored in with the green. The cucumber was also very thick around, but about 6-7 inches long. I should have taken a picture of it. The chickens have already devoured it. Anyway... Is there anything wrong with it? It did not seem to be rotting at all. I used to work at Heinz, and it had that color going on, like it was rotting, but again it was very firm, even in the rusty colored spots.
Some one picked my watermelon too. Butt clowns. I asked around at work last night. Trying to find someone who needs some free wood for the winter, to take down the trees. All they have to do, is drop them straight back. They would not have to worry about hitting anything with the ones I want out. It would give me the minimum amount of sun needed then in the back. Looks like I may have found someone. When would be the best time to take them out? I was thinking in the fall, so that the birds wouldn't be disturbed. I'd hate to take out a bird nest. The squirrels are smart enough to not nest in the trees in the yard. Dogs. LOL. BUT that is good news for me.
Anyway, my plantar fascitis is really bothering my foot. I think I will go and put it up, maybe roll it over an bottle of ice for 15 minutes...
