Ginger has not laid an egg in near a week. I gave her a good feel up tonight and feel nothing wrong with her. She's happy-go-lucky, eating, drinking, her tail up high. Can a hen really turn off her ability to lay eggs?
I did feel that the hens were in some state of mourning when Sugar did not return. Ask me to put that into words and I cannot. But there was a change in their behavior and attitude this week and only tonight do I feel they are starting to come around.
|Coco eating her final dose of medicine on Monday. There was never an issue getting her to take her medicine. She's a food eating machine. She'll eat just about anything you put in front of her.|
|Coco would prefer I not pick her up but she'll tolerate it. She's a beautiful bird. And being a Jersey Giant, she's a BIG girl. I never cease to be amazed at what girth she has to her.|
|Sweet Ginger. Never minds being picked up and cuddled.|
|Honey Bear also love to be picked up and is so very affectionate.|
|And finally, Spice. Doesn't mind being held. But isn't as big of a snuggler as Ginger and Honey Bear.|
