Good morning Friends
Bazza didn’t turn up for training this morning! He was apparently a little on the hot side yesterday afternoon, before the rain/storms, seeking refuge in the pond but he was a no show this morning … either he has great metabolism and has already burnt off those love handles; 04:50am on a Friday morning is just too early for him, he couldn’t find his togs or, even after all my advice, he overdid it yesterday .. tut
Hey locknest4, as you know, any guesses I make with regards gender are just that, guesses. I looked at the black one for a while .. sometimes I thought rooster due to comb, wattles, colouring and feathering and then other times I thought large combed pullet due to stance, legs and expression … definitely sitting on the fence on this one and not taking a guess either way
RodneyRooster I recommend a Google Image search of ‘Teila’, apparently it is not only a girls name
For those keeping count, Cilla has laid two eggs since being broken from broodiness.
Poor Cilla, she can’t win .. when she is broody she is dubbed GodCilla and when she is not broody ‘Nike’ [Just Do It!]. When she is broody I forget what a fuss she makes about laying an egg. She runs around for anywhere from 30mins to a couple of hours “gunna lay an egg, she’s in MY nest box, gunna lay an egg, she’s in MY nest box, gunna lay an egg, she’s in MY nest box” to which she gets replies from myself and hubby “Gees Cilla, Just Do It!” .. silence while she does the deed ... “I laid an egg, I laid an egg, I laid an egg”.
KiKi is still semi broody, hopping on the nest when she can but not overly perturbed if she can’t .. hopefully, weather permitting, I may be able to snap her out of it completely this weekend.
