I made the mistake of showering. It has stopped raining, so I went ahead and put on a white T-shirt (not into wet t-shirt contests). I made dinner, and saved the vegetable and bread scraps. I went out, put on my coop boots, and entered. The mud was bad in front of the coop as I entered, and began my chores. With a flutter of wings, Cadburry landed on my shoulder to chat while I worked.
Should I mention the mud again? I am now decorated with it on my right shoulder and part of my back.
Despite my earlier concerns (maybe fifteen posts ago) I am now fairly certain that she is going to be around for a while longer. I am now waiting for her to start laying.
