Trying to read and catch up.. Mostly I post on the BYC FB locations... Been busy recently, Well sick, and then on Vacation, and still sick.. Refusing to go to the doctor since I have Crap for medical insurance these day....
Need to clean my coop.. ugh.. Maybe I can get to it this weekend.. Change back to straw from the sand, that did a great Job of keeping the smell down during the hot days, but boy have they made a mess of the sand.. Faster than I can replace it anyway..
Anyone have any Hatching eggs and lives close to me? I only need like 4 or 5 to give to my one broody girl, I gave her 3, she broke 2 and the one did not hatch :( And she will not get off the nest I am told until she hatches.
Be patient new chicken peeps! I waited forever for that first egg, then you get little eggs, then when they get to regular size, they will A) Molt and you stop getting eggs till that is over, then B) they go broody and stop laying till they hatch a freaking egg then you have to wait about another month till she starts to lay again. Crazy Chickens... and C) They are now slow with egg production because they are getting older!! HAHAH But it is sure fun to watch them run in the morning for their scratch/veggies & fruits!! my lil "Fat Girls" heheheh
Oh quick question, something I noticed a 3 of my chickens doing, it rained Yesterday so not sure if that has anything to do with it but, it was bed time, and they are on their perchs like normal, I pet them all good night every evening when I lock them up. And the 3 where shaking there heads funny, I took one out and gave her a nice inspection I didn't see anything (no mites.fleas. etc.) Would they just have been doing that to get the rain water off? They were not soaking wet, but felt Damp?
Hope everyone is doing well! If not get well soon! Congrats to anyone getting Married, think I read someone is! Welcome New peeps!
