    Well that was fun - NOT! We just had a huge storm go through, torrential rain and yep, Cilla did not take the bubbies into the dry coop but decided to shelter under some shade-cloth (not waterproof). I had to don the rain coat and crawl into a muddy run picking up soggy babies and mumma and putting them into the coop. Thunder, lightening, torrential rain and useless rain coat; I reckon I would have been a very funny sight! Then I'm still out there drying them as well as I could with a chamois and they are now tucked up in their dry coop on dry straw. They seem to be drying out. Poor little munchkins were shivering a little before I ran the chamois over them but not so much now. I think they are going to be OK; I, on the other hand, look like a half drowned rat and will probably catch a chill. Bourbon time I reckon!

    Question time again friends. One of my commercial layer looked like it was gonna take a dump but turned out laying a what looked like an unformed egg. I'm new to all this, she has laid 4 days in a row nice looking eggs and didn't lay yesterday them today whilst I was down with them outta the pen that happened. So is that normal or should I worry?

    Quite normal to see various shaped and textured eggs when they first come into lay. Anything from a " fart " egg to a rubber, soft shelled egg.
