Good morning Friends
Oh my Fancy that is just awful at any time of the year but if possible, even moreso so close to Christmas
chicken-clucky that is a nice sized egg from Molly.
appps love the Santa picture tradition.
Plans for today? The bare minimum .. today I am going to have a day off, in the garden with the gals.
I figure seen as hubby and son are both out of the house on Monday and Tuesday, those are the days I will mow the lawn and do the housework .. today and tomorrow, relaxing.
While not serious enough to separate her, we have our first ‘injury’ in the nearly three years I have had chickens. I noticed on yesterday’s free range that Blondie’s comb did not look quite right and on closer inspection, someone has given her a good peck and she had some blood in her head feathers and at the base of her comb.
Luckily it is in a spot that does not draw the attention of the others and she seems to be OK about it all but I will be keeping a close eye on her.
I suspect it was KiKi who is taking the ‘moving up the pecking order’ just a little too seriously.
Being on holidays means that I will be able to keep a closer eye on them and they will have more supervised free ranging so, while I am not impressed and KiKi is on thin ice, Blondie will have extra space to keep her distance and heal while I make sure no one makes it worse.
While even slightly entertaining the prospect of rehoming KiKi makes me so very sad, if she keeps this up I will have to consider it .. I hate seeing any of my girls being picked on and definitely do not like them being injured. Also, KiKi is the noisiest and most demanding so yep, thin ice
