Good morning friends
devinandfeather aaaaw, I am sorry to hear about your little gosling; maybe he got squashed/suffocated but good news that the little one with the sore leg has improved. Love the pics .. they are soooo cute!
ChristieB I would be more relaxed about my kids also … probably because they can either tell or signal to someone that something is wrong; chickens, not so much! I can’t remember the last time both hubby and I went away at the same time, definitely not in the over two years we have had chickens. I know that it will probably have to happen one day and I am not looking forward to it; I have no idea who would look after the girls and I would worry the whole time I was away!
locknest4 sorry, I have no experience with automatic coop doors. Kleonaptra sorry, no experience with incubators either.
appps I am sorry to read of your incubator dramas and so hope you have some bubs soon; very exciting! for pips!
Anniebee your girls are gorgeous!
Sam I am pleased to hear that Gretel is on the improve.
Fancy I can see why that picture made the calendar, it is excellent!
sjturner79 I am so sorry to read of your loss
satay congrats on the bub(s)
On the frozen vegies in the water subject, I use the el cheapo mixed veg [the little square ones] .. my gals do not eat peas!! They do not like grapes either .. I know I wonder sometimes if they are actually chickens! They love watermelon on a hot day … well, any day actually.
On the subject of corn, my gals will not eat the corn in their organic coarse grain mix but love the fresh stuff. Pellets? “You know what you can do with your pellets! We are NOT eating them!”
I am enjoying hearing about all the broodys, hatches and bubs! Especially since I am having a break from all three
