Good morning friends
So, there I was, thinking I was having some involuntary twitching thing going on but a scan of the memory bank revealed that it was only just shivering due to the cool nip in the air this morning … it has been a long hot summer
It is raining in Brisbane today and even as I type
Lots of great, educational discussions going on and as I was working on site yesterday, lots to catch up on.
On the subject of ‘the egg song’ I truly believe it is dependant on their individual chickenalities [not breed] and frame of mind they are in at the time.
I read that they sing the egg song away from the nest, to draw attention to themselves and not the nest and to deter any lurking predators .. not sure if that is true or not.
On the subject of ‘combs’, having a Bantam Langshan, I am intrigued as to why their combs “would be called defective"?
CluckerFeet love the pics and yep, I do believe your chickens might be camera shy or just showing you their best side .. fluffy butts!
MyHaven beautiful birds .. I hope you are able to find homes for them.
mooandmcgee good to read that your girls are being good little chickens! When they are older, you might want to hire them out as educators for other flocks .. put the Princesses at Bambrook Bantams at the top of the waiting list please
Fancy I am so very sorry to read of Tigger’s passing
LuckysMum I have mentioned this in the past, but I find it easier to open a Word Document, type my replies as I scroll through the thread and then simply copy & paste in a Reply. It also helps when typing a long post in that you do not get interrupted by prompts of someone else posting while you are typing.
