I don't know if weirdness even begins to describe what ya got going on there...I haven't seen that before, hope someone with experience chimes in.
Karen, I don't know any CPTs on your end of the state. If you're in Westmoreland county, that puts you in region IV and Dr. Erin Moore would be the vet assigned to your area, she can most likely give you the number of someone certified by you. She is located in Gibsonia and her number is (724) 443-1585. Good luck!
Yeah, it made me nauseous and I felt so bad for her. She was in that nesting box (yes, we finally got them laying in there lol) for at least an hour... no "egg song" either. I noticed for a couple days before she was kinda dizzy and skittish, but I chalked it up to the heat, then this egg yesterday. What I also thought was odd was that neither of the other 2 girls laid an egg, it was Gertrude's "turn" lol. Maybe hen solidarity?!
Need to vent
I processed some birds this weekend and my daughter wanted some, my rule to the kids is that, if you want to eat them you must help process them...here is thesticky part.......she is passing that onto her kids ages 4 and 6....
I had the 4 and 6 year old helping me gut, they have perfect size hands for this,,, they did a great jjob, till today...the 6 year old is telling all of her fiends about this, and my daughter is getting angry calls from other parents..
I see nothing wrong with these kids helping, but apparently our backwards society does.
Wingstone, lemme tell ya, I feel ya!! Society seemed to be becoming more and more backwards at a steady pace until around 2000, since then it's been a hard and fast downward spiral! If it gets any more backwards, it'll be inside out... maybe then people will be forced to take a good hard look at how far they have strayed away from all things natural and a change will occur. Deep in my bones, I feel "something wicked this way comes"! I've finally gotten my 10 yr old to understand that, at some point, our girls will be processed too. Finally summer vacation is upon us and the prying eyes of society won't be an every day thing for a few months and we can do this "chicken farming" with a little less spotlight ?!
