I think I am in a blogging rut. Maybe it is the heat,
maybe it is that I have worked hours and hours
and my mind just refuses to work.
I know I am being a complaining baby, we
have had hardly any heat to speak of this year,
but it is supposed to be up to 108 by Friday, and
I am dreading it, not so much for me but for my
We have this fan that is in my husbands
work shed, I have thought about taking it out to
the hens. I go out and make sure they have water
and food, they are gaining weight because I
keep feeding them because they look so miserable.
I only got two eggs today which was weird. Then I
have one of my oldest hens, who has decided she wants
to stay in the nest box. She isn't sitting nor is she broody.
It is too hot so I am afraid she wants to die. I keep going
out and booting her off the nest box but she just keeps going
My new little hens haven't started laying yet, but I think it
will be pretty soon, because they keep doing that mourning
cry that they do, I wonder if they get scared like a woman does
before she has her first baby? No matter how many classes,
or books or anything else you just never know what to expect
the first time. So I always wish I knew hen so I could explain to
them what was happening.
My four roosters are driving me nuts. I need to get rid of 3 of them
but I still like them all and they all have cute personalities, but I know
that I don't need 4 roosters. I tried to separate them into different pens
with the older hens I had and I just couldn't stand the looks on the roosters
faces. The big hens just beat them up so bad. So they are all back together.
The roosters are much happier, the little hens aren't though.
See what I mean, a rut, a whole post about nothing but chickens.
Have a great Wednesday!
