Good Morning on this not so Warm Morning
I am trying to get my chickens to understand that the clock
has changed I do not want to do the 7 AM feeding LOL
It is Cold and only going to get colder
So with Shelby and Rango sitting in their window throwing
a fit at a Squirrel I thought ok I will go feed
the chickens and the Cat
my first three chickens that the wild dogs got in the spring time
these three were consistent with laying eggs everyday
My youngins, Ellie and Gidget,
these gals have really filled out and grown
they should of started laying around the end of October
with the cold coming in I figured I was not going to get any eggs
or not MANY
The old White one her name is Granny
or Chicken soup as Hubby calls her because she
has yet to lay eggs, we figured she was just old
The Black one her name is Mammy
she laid from day one every day
and about three weeks or so ago decided she wanted to
nest !!! And let me tell you she is MOODY !!
So we have been eggless or so I thought??
I go out there in the cold open their coop to let them out
and by their ramp is a little brown egg
I got so excited to think I had another hen laying!!
*point in having Chickens LOL*
Well for three days now
The old gal has been hiding up in a corner I can not reach
in the nest! I have to pull her out to get her to get a drink and eat
and she would go right back to the nest!!
I had a hard time getting hold of her this morning and up under
her straw I see the top of an egg, as I pulled on her I see another
one OMG !!!! I am cramming eggs in my coat pockets SMILE
most I am sure are not good I will do the test on them
But apparently we have layers again YAY !!!!
I see a Big Omelet dinner in my near future *SIGH*
sorry I am excited, and Hubby now has to go out in the cold
and put another door on that corner so I can get into it
without struggling to reach
And by the way I am sure Miss Mammy is going to
be really put out with me now :o)
Shelby and Rango are because I did not let them out in time
to catch the squirrel LOL !!
