Fizzybelle thank you! The naughty chicken pics were funny

KiKi was the only one laying so the last egg here was the 20th of April, just before she passed away.
Cilla has not laid since the 19th of January
Since the 10th of January Dusty has laid 6 eggs
Blondie has not laid since the 20th of January
LuLu has not laid since the 13th of December and
Crystal stopped on the 3rd of April
In April I got a grand total of 16 eggs from 6 chickens
I can sooo relate to the “My owner had to buy eggs at the GROCERY STORE because I’m a freeloading slacker” BUT on a positive note, no one is broody lol
Seeing your list here Teila, I don't feel so bent out of shape, about ' so few eggs since January '. Hopefully broodiness for your girls has been forgotten for the winter months anyway.
My 3 girls, most likely during one of their evening conferences at the separating fences, decided on who would moult and when - in order to make life far more easy for Mum.
Mandy started it all off, and as usual dropped 2 feathers per day ( soooo slow ) ... followed by Mindy who could fill a mattress, and who has decided that she made a grand mistake and forgot her head and hackles --- so started dropping more pillow fulls from that area after finishing the first moult. The feathers there are now growing so ??? .... maybe a blue egg within a month or so ? .... and two days ago Molly RIR began a good 'orderly' moult. She always does things well. So since January, we would have had approx. 1 dozen eggs, most of which were I think from Molly ( probably a couple ( darker ) from Mandy - at completion of her moult which she began early in the year - but no more from her since 2 weeks back - she might have decided to have another slow moult, as there are some fine grey under belly feathers mixed in with Mollys' neat red feathers. ) .
All egg production is now at a shuddering halt.
Had a great laugh at the naughty chook pics. Chook poo not good for dogs, especially fresh stuff, ( but ya can't convince a dog about that !! ). Typical that it would be a Golden Retriever sitting next to the chook .... hilarious and spot on that one. Very funny posts those.
Tryinglittleleg and Aussie1chook. - Welcome to the thread - I am sure you will enjoy every moment of it.
LuckysMum .... I have a lot of 'shockwave crashes and reloads' on this site too. Chrome seems to be the worst. I know others have had similar problems. Guess you've discovered not to reload while in the middle of typing a post .... I learned that one the hard way.
A few other little problems crop up from time to time. At the moment it is behaving itself.
........Cheers all -
