I've got to deworm my molting flock. I saw two round worms in one poop three mornings ago and one in a different pile two mornings ago. It takes too long to worm them on a work night so tonight is the night.
Mine still seem to be eating well though.
Good morning Cafe. Coffee is ready.
Another day and chilly wet weather. High expected to be 45F and freezing over night.
Last day of work and last weekend of working at home before I need to work at dad's in earnest.
Lots of feathers out there,
more feathers than turds,
*way* more feathers than eggs!
Was thinking this morning, while sifting the poop boards,
about starting a thread titled "What's on Your Poop Board?"
A play on the credit card slogan "Whats in Your Wallet".
Have long loved the observations that can be so revealing when using a poop board.
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the poops are the windows to the body.
This morning there were lots of feathers, some get stuck in the sifter basket which is a PITA.
Also lots of flakes of new feather sheathing, some blackish-some whitish.
Not many poops, they just aren't eating much, not sure if I should worry about that, and do something, or not. Might mix up a dose of vitamin water this afternoon.
