​Hopefully he takes care of his pet before you have to take care of a stray acting, chicken killing dog.

Howdy to all. Dark Cornish LF,  Cornish bantams, a few guineas and whatever else the coons didn't eat. Plus my quarter horses, goats and Zebu. Have a DELIGHTFUL day.

       Every day above ground is a good day. Some people didn't get that privilege this morning.

Looks like I've got an issue. I've got 4 in a tractor. They haven't laid an egg in 2 weeks. Now the little one looks like she is losing feathers and they didn't eat the bread and scratch I put out yesterday before i left and just now they didn't even eat some squash I put in there.
Dunno

The cold and damp air can throw birds off egg laying....and sometimes feed. If you have wormed them this fall (twice 10 days apart) then they may just need some enticing.
Here are a few suggestions:
Offer them a scrambled egg with cayenne pepper.
A little kitty food soaked in water makes a hearty snack...it should have protein that they need for feather growth.
Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a cup of water and let that be their only water for a few hours...makes sure they each get some....also helps with the gut.
Plain yogurt has good probiotics they may need for their gut...a few tablespoons mixed with some of their layer pellets.
Impale 1/2 an orange on a hook end of a hanger or piece of wire and hang at pecking height...a little extra vitamin C.

We celebrated Christmas with our girls last Sunday and will see the siblings this afternoon.
So this morning Roger and I took advantage of this nice temperature to pull dead plants in the garden. We were able to clear out 6 of our 16 X 4 foot beds.
Now lunch will be chili that has been cooking all night in the crock pot.
