I've been sick for a couple days, but I managed to tough it out and go get some pictures to share! After all, isn't chicken therapy the best medicine?
First off, another contender for 36. the most eggs in one nest box by the hens
. Not sure if this counts at all, though. As I said, I've been sick, so I didn't collect the eggs yesterday. So about half of these eggs are from yesterday and the rest from today.
Speaking of eggs, I was walking in the chicken yard the other day and came across 60. an odd egg
It wasn't odd for size or shape, or even color. It was odd for location: about 20 feet from the chicken coop. See the coop in the background here?
I guess an Easter-egger in the flock had a lazy day.
Every year, a new 'spa' crops up, where I will witness mass dust-bathings. It has been everywhere from beside the forsythia bush to under one of the window boxes on the house. This year's spa is just a few feet down the driveway from the chicken coop. I didn't catch a mass dust-bathing there like I had hoped, but at least Flicker, Twisty, and Pace were having 9. a day at the spa
Notice the open dusting holes all around?95. A pretty Guinea
. Scratch that, a handsome
Guinea! I just love how my royal purple Guinea boys look when they catch the sun just so!
I fell ill when we were just about finished with a new section for the Guinea fowl enclosure, extra tall so that I can put some really high perches in. The hens decided to play the role of 68. building inspectors
while I was out with my camera today.
Kate thinks the door is questionable. Of course, everything is questionable to Kate; she's such a worrier!
Betty, however, quite likes it over all. The support on one wall is a good place to perch.
Betty even took 84. a 'tightrope' walk
across it. "Seems sturdy..."
And with these themes checked, that puts me at three-fourths
of the way done!! 25 themes to go and 2-and-a-half weeks to do it!
EDIT: And for some reason, I can't edit the first post to check these off...
I guess I'll try again later..?Edited by pipdzipdnreadytogo - 8/2/12 at 3:04pm
