Fun to read up on what everyone is up to! I hope I get to meet a lot of you at the bash...it's so different the posts from the past years' were all about the bash this close...I guess that's what the other thread is about though...
I have lamented this for years! I pretty much just let the house BE in the summer...well, I used to anyway--now I just let it do it's thing all year! LOL!
Ended up trying to give an Eggbound hen a warm salt bath for about a half hour but she was too far gone and stressed. I put her in her own pen and gave her water with electrolytes and calcium on her food but just went outside to find her fave down on the floor. She was my favorite. The prettiest Olive egger ever. Guess that all comes with having the girls. Just got done burying her under the oak tree. Now some coffee and relaxing time I guess
I hate when you try your hardest to save them and they still die on you! Sorry for your efforts and your loss. Lots of times now when I see them "down" I will just end it. The heartbreak gets to be too much and the time invested too valuable.
Yeah, like I said...Jim you are too much!
And with that, I am off to get some feed so if anyone actually decides to feed the birds while we are gone there will be something to give them!
See you tomorrow!
I just made sure my 50# feeder is full and the goose pond is full of water. the baby chicks have 5 gallons of water, and their 20# feeder is full.. Now I can leave for a week .
