It's been pretty quiet for my flocks. Odysseus has started to get a little chippy with me due to being cooped up & my pullets keep going broody, but I haven't been having the issues everyone else seems to be having lately. I guess all my bad luck sticks with me & hasnt spread out to any of my animals. Hope things settle down soon for everyone.
It's not fun and yes, been down the PTSD road, couldn't leave the house to take out the trash on some days and was on a dirt road on 80 acres! It's better now, started about 4 years old etc. First memory of running away from a crowd. What fun lol. Taken many, many years of work to be able to handle some things now. There is hope, just lots of work and slow, baby steps.
Sorry I didn't answer soon. Been pouring over the web in hopes of finding some Oxine AH locally till mine gets here. Some of my flock have a respiratory thing going on........treating them but want the coops sterile. Literally. I guess theres no local source from what I am finding..........much work to get done in cleaning till it gets here:( I can't believe there's not a local source for it. The thought of bleaching everything and trying to dry it out vs fogging in this cold weather isn't a pleasant thought. Been a bit of a bear to be around lol
