    Oh no, please stop talking about cold! I'm having a heart attack as it is with the leaves starting to change around here! I'm not ready for cold weather again! Lol

    Slowly Losing it......
    With as much time as I've spent outdoors in the fall and winter I couldn't agree more.

    Our winters are wet. And with high humidity it's miserable. An inch of snow shuts down the city. We have no snow plows. But usually we get ice. Which is so destructive. Not looking forward to it. Honestly the short daylight hours bother me the most. Dark going & coming from work.

    I just want rain. Dead grass and drought resistant weeds don't make good grazing. We are heading back to 90 degrees today.

    In other news... ChaCha was attacked again. Not sure who did it. It's really bad. Her head is open where her fluffy feathers should be. Using antiseptic spray and bag balm. Feeding her separately while the others are eating. She is hiding in the barn/coop room. [​IMG]
    I was gone for a few days. My Mother in Law was feeding them and didn't notice. It was already scabbing when I found her Monday. But that is a big gaping hole in her head. Skin is loose.

    Oh no! I hope she heals up for you and doesn't get attacked again
    :(

    We finally got some rain today here and it's a comfortable 66°. Such a nice change from the scorching heat and sun. All my turkeys are willingly just hanging out in their own shed (not the chicken coop for once). They're just lounging on their roost, preening and yawning lol

    Here is my big boy all fluffed out. He gobbles, then I gobble and we go back and forth till I have to stop. He gets all excited.

    Thanks for the well wishes. I don't know if it was another chicken or something breaking into the coop at night. Last time raccoons broke in it was a bloody massacre. If its one of my girls or Charlie, I don't know what I'll do. Can't have this kind of behavior.
