    Any improvement on the chicken?

    The chicken is fine... A bit of her wattle is hanging. That's about it. Still acts normal and her flock has been treating her well.

    We had the shortest service known to man!!! My boys and nephews stood with Devin and I walked down with my nieces. It was the funniest service. We walked down to my little buttercup from the three amigos and my nieces stopped along the way down the isle to do selfies!!! Fun small wedding[​IMG]

    Well I am finally fully recovered from our wedding day celebration. Husband is off to work and my house looks like it's been hit by a tornado!!!! Lol
    So Ethel has really slowed down her egg laying this past few weeks... Maybe getting one a week... Not sure why. Weather took a dramatic change from sunny hot weather to windy and rainy weather!!! 60 degrees. Plus we had that huge wind storm Saturday and it has since been cloudy and rainy. I changed their feed yesterday cause I ran out of it. They are now on a layer feed but the percentages of nutrients doesn't seem much different from what they were eating. My Alice girl, the beautiful Minorca, has been squatting and sings the egg song all morning long with out an egg. She sits in the nest box but nothing!!! When she sees Lucy my other new hamphshire red go look around in the boxes she bawk bawk bawwwwwwks until she gets out. I think it's hilarious. Ethel will now do the same when Lucy is lurking about. Angel is doing better but she's got an ugly scab on her neck right between the waddles.. It looks like the part of the wattle that was hanging came off. Gabriel lays with her and keeps her company. Angel and Gabriel are my white jersey Giants. They aren't quite ready to be interested in laying although Gabriel did squat for me the other day. They do not liked to be held but once you get then the are so gentle. The only girls I have that won't peck me to get my attention!!!! Super sweet and gentle giants for sure!!! The younger rescue girls are still just doing their thing. Little jerry Seinfeld still doesn't realize he is a rooster. All is well but seriously I got to clean the coop today rain or shine!!!!! Have a blessed day everyone!!!
