Thank you. As long as my Internet keeps working I'm going to check those out and keep looking. I feel so bad for her and I feel like a horrible pet parent that I can't get her in immediately hmm.png

I've got some free roosters that would be happy to "comfort" your hen.

Maybe I am just to tired to be reading. I pictured you saying that from the corner of your mouth with a cigar in the other corner, and then a really evil looking grin...

Really I need to sleep

But really I am sure someone will have something to provide company or the hen

I've been MIA for some time. Been keeping up, but quiet. Graveyard shift does that to me. Finally done with that for a while.

Had an old, non-running tractor and implements sitting around. Someone stored by and bought it but asked me to sweeten the deal with a few roosters. Well, heck yeah! Got rid of 11! He wants to do the work of processing, go for it, my time runs short. Not like I don't have enough birds I can eat if I want to!
Lawn mower blew up, so had to find a " new" one, since a replacement engine cost more than I paid for it 5 years ago. Found an old one that took a little tinkering, but runs well and is a beast. Creeper gears on a lawn tractor? Yep, its got 'em. Wheel weights all around, too. Ugly, needs steering bushings and stuff, but gotta love a beater.

Blarney we need to catch up. Dave decided he wants to go to the beach this weekend, and since he doesn't request much. We are going to the beach! :) Maybe next weekend?!?! If you have any Marans for sale, I lost my blue Maran, very disappointed about that. I put a radio in the coop to hopefully deter the fox... Since I caught my poor cat in the trap Vs the fox. He is now in the ICU with the one chicken that was injured. He is just limping now, glad i have all my medical stuff for my Chickens. I really hate that fox.

Of course I got them fresh water with ice right away and they seem okay now. But all my chooks are super hot. And yesterday they did not appreciate an occasional sprinkle with the garden hose for cooling... hide.gif

Awe poor ladies. Maybe put some water in that area in case it happens again?

Lots of unhappy people now...

Yeah, they messed that up bad. I didn't even get to answer any questions and it said not eligible. Really? How did they get that information?  I clicked it again and it said all the survey had reached it's max. Very bad survey. 

 

Happy Thursday! :ya

Annie, I have been asupplementing the water with electrolytes, adding a bit of apple cider vinegar, adding ice cubes and fresh mint - all in the waterer. Also of course keeping adequate shade. I also added a pan of cool water for them to play in if they want along with a bottle if frozen water. Hoping that is enough.

Thanks for the tips guys! @roseschickies. Those girls you sold me are egg laying machines! I thought production had slowed down because of the heat, but today I found the secret laying spot, haha! We heard the egg song and only saw five chickens, so after a quick search, I found the elusive one with a pile of eggs! lol.png

Looks like just hosta next to the covered porch.....



But underneath....
