Oh, those poor things. At least they got to live out their days with a happy human caretaker.

On Kookaburras - I'm not saying to hurt them, but now would be the time I get aggressive about chasing them off. Flock is family.

We think one of our chickens in egg bound, gave her a bath last night but no improvement this morning so it's off to the vet with her.

I almost had a heart attack today. The chicks are 5 weeks old and I have a temporary pen outside for them on warm days. It's pretty warm today so I had them out in it and I have the door open to the outside in the room I'm working in. I suddenly started hearing the chick distress call. I look outside the door and the red shoulder hawk that lives in my front yard was perched on top of the temp pen. I let out a loud gasp which scared it away! The temp pen has a top so they were fine but I was paranoid that the chicks could squeeze out through some of the gaps like a bunch of idiots so I spent a bunch of time securing it better. The whole time the hawk kept circling around every couple minutes.

Good luck with your chicken!

It was pretty cold here and today of all days my broody hen decided to switch nests. Shes been absolutely rock solid on her chosen nest up til today. Her 2 real eggs and 4 golf balls were cold when I went out to check. I brought the eggs inside and stuck them in the incubator in hopes they will survive but Im doubtful. I candled the incubator eggs and 6 of them are alive. We will see how many chicks we end up with for her to raise. Poor little egglings.

We took her to the vet who gave her some antibiotics and we separated her from the other 2. We were keeping her inside at night because it was getting so cold here. Sadly she just died this evening, she was getting weaker and weaker and just sitting more and more all day.



Here she is having a bath, poor Ada.

Oh, and Jones was there too.


One of my chickens keeps laying eggs on the back doorstep. I appreciate you bringing the eggs closer to the house, chicken, but the nest box was fine???

They're bartering for access to the special human place where scraps and treats and who-knows-what-other-chicken-delights are stored.
