cwrite yeah, some cats can be very sensitive .. Syba definitely suffers from separation anxiety when his Dad goes away.
When we first got chickens our routine was a bit out of whack and Syba ended up at the Vet due to very frequent vomiting … turns out that was his reaction to having his routine out of whack and he prefers to be fed at the same time every day
Sprinkles is a cutie!
LuckysMum your bubs and adults are beautiful! So is Bear!
Aaaw appps I am so sorry to read that Carl is under the weather again.
Just joining in on the Council limit discussion … 6 allowed here and 6 I have. As I have mentioned before, that is for my peace of mind as I know that if I have more than I should I will fret that I will be sprung. Also, I think 6 is a good number for our yard. We were only ever going to have 2 lol
So, post broody, KiKi is moulting and boy oh boy is she moulting … frizzle feathers as far as the eye can see
Moulting is definitely messing with their system .. Dusty laid a soft shell on Sunday night and while having a hard shell, Crystal dropped an overnighter from the roost that same evening. When you are only getting may be one or two eggs a week, seeing two go to waste is sad. Eggs were on the shopping list on Sunday and yep, after paying for them, they were scrambled and given to the girls for breakfast this morning
One comment - moulting definitely does mess with their systems.
I feel so very sorry for them when they are battling all that - and then the regrowing of feathers, which I just know is uncomfortable for them .... they seem to stick into the soft flesh from time to time - and I see my moulting chickens picking at the new growth frantically, or standing up to sleep, so's the new 'feather tracts' don't hurt them.
Then when all that is over - they are back to pushing hard to produce eggs .... a sizeable birth 6 days out of 7 ........ ( numbing of the mind here ) ....
Poor wee souls - and we take so much for granted from them. They deserve velvet cushions, golden cloaks and be-jeweled crowns.
Cheers !! ........
