We're experiencing semi tropical weather here. The sun is shining, it's +25 degrees Celsius, thunder is roaring, lightning strikes and it's raining cat's and dogs. Our flock is experiencing this kind of weather for the first time, they're all ruffling up their feathers, and the head-tufts on the Araucana-mixes have never been bigger. The meteorological fortunetellers mentioned the possibility of 4cm hail.
Also, yesterday we got our first health-scare, one of the roo's was just standing still under the coop with his eyes closed, making these little shaking moves and sort of looked like a dog that's about to throw up. And his crop was enormous. Hopefully he had just had a bit too big of a dinner, today he's back to normal. But reading all the bad luck all of the people here have gone through I got worried immediately. The better half found my worrying amusing and forbid me from surfing the emergencies threads on BYC. Guess she was right.
