Thanks for all the well wishes for Annabelle, who is back to chasing me for food as soon as I step outside and generally just being a busybody. The avitrol did the trick. I will try alternating medications though so the worms don't get used to it. I'm expecting a new box of mealworms to arrive too. I ordered them as a get well treat for Annabelle. I got a new item in addition to the live worms; a mixed bag of dried crickets, dried mealworms, cracked corn and sunflower seeds. Sounds like a winning combination to me.
Did anyone see this photo by the Chicken Chick on her facebook today? I love it.
Great news about Annabelle ...
Love the dandelion chicken ... LOL.
I have to wonder what is wrong with my big girls - they won't go near the ( expensive ) dried mealworms I purchased. Even pick around them in rice / oats / greens goodies from "Mum" .... leave them sitting there for visitors to eat ??? ( perhaps - other birds ? ) ... unless they become so inquisitive that they do polish them off. I have not stuck around enough in wettish, cold weather to observe over hours !!!
Mindy on the other hand, knows exactly what to do with them. Wolfs them down.
Chooks can be ultra weird at times.
Weather down south here, is cold - but supposed to warm up again next week ( which is very strange for this time of year ) .... I love the cold, hate the heat in our dangerous summers in Victoria. Elsewhere in Oz, it's pretty darned dangerous too. ....
