Hello everyone! Its been a while since I have been able to get onto the forum (major computer problems). I have some catch up reading to do. I hope you are all well!
I have manged to put some roosts up in my coop for the ladies and they LOVE them! They are all roosting up high at night now and we have had no mishaps with falling roosts (screws and a drill fixed that problem). I'm quite chuffed with my efforts.
I also got a little surprise upon returning home after a weekend away last weekend, yay our first eggs! When I cracked them they were just perfect little eggs
My poor Harriet and Sybil are having a few issues (I think) at the moment. I'm hoping someone might be able to offer some advise to me. Harriet has been closing her left eye over the last couple of days. I managed to sneak up on her this morning to pick her up and take a look. There is not discharge or anything mucky around the eye. I'm hoping it just a bit a trauma. She is alert, eating, drinking and pooing normally.
Harriet good eye, lovely and clear;
Harriet bad eye, note the white dot in the right hand corner;
Harriet closed bad eye;
Sybil sees to have an overgrown beak and I think its slightly chipped too. I cant sneak up and pick her up as she is the least tame. Is this something to worry about. She is also alert and seems to be eating fine.
I would appreciate any advise or help. I hate worrying about my animals
