Thanks for the kind words for Agnes everyone. Got another egg today! She's a little champion. I hope it gets easier for her sooner though. She was crying out, and Annabelle was also on the nest at the same time, and clucked back, probably in sympathy lol.
Go Agnes!!! Congrats
I agree on the Brizzi storm - it just made it more humid. Are you northside too.
My Silkie laid every day that she was not clucky, summer and winter. To be completely honest she missed a couple of days in winter but never two in a row.
Did you know dunking in water is one way to break a clucky. Are you dunking a Silkie? That could be risky.
I'm on the east side if Brisbane :) Are you getting that nice strong wind on your side today? it's fantastic, really helping keep things cool.
I was aware of the dunking thing as a way to break a broody, but I will be more mindful of that though if it's risky to anyone. I had an instance of heatstroke despite all my preventative measures and am eager to not have it happen again. I have the bucket there in case of extreme heat and circumstances. Everyone's fine today though, just been hosing the grass under the trees where they're foraging. If anyone gets really hot and is panting too much I think I'll bring them upstairs in the kitchen for a while where it's cool.
Oh and this little terror is three months old today!
Beatrice still has a fair bit of growing to do but has settled in with the others finally, it took some time but we got there :)
