Good morning Friends
I am definitely not complaining because there are people a heap worse off .. but nothing like waking up and finding that there is a burst water main in your street, you are one of 42 houses affected and restoration is expected around 08:30am.
Been up for an hour and in that hour I have realised just how reliant we are on that water … toilet, coffee, fresh chicken water, shower, water for cats .. and that is just the first hour.
Luckily we had enough water in the fridge for coffee and the cats and hopefully it is back on before the heat of the day as I would like to give the gals fresh water before the expected 34C predicted temps. There is always the supermarket where we can pick up water .. sure makes you grateful for what we have.
Hey Luke, good to see you again! Good to see you again also cwrite, yep, tis the season to be broody.
I am back to no broodys!
Because KiKi stresses in the broody breaker to the point that she frantically throws herself against the wire to get out and I am concerned she will hurt herself, the plan was to simply lock her out of the nest box between 4pm and 5am until the weekend when they are supervised free ranging for the majority of the day and I can lock her out of the coop with distractions. Anyways, after 4 days, yesterday at 1pm she left the nest of her own accord and so far, has not returned Hubby decided to take his PC outside to work and listen to the cricket so the gals got bonus free range.
The only difference yesterday being that we only got one egg and Dusty laid that in the spare nest box in the other part of the coop, away from the main nest boxes. I am thinking it might be because she has not been sitting on an actual egg for over 24 hours, it got a little too hot in there or, because she was recently broody, she just gave up.
Whatever the reason .. good stuff!!
Yay for no broodies I thought miss blue marans had been broken as she hadn't been sitting for 2 days and yesterday morning i went out to feed them and she was back as broody as ever.
