It was a pretty quiet week this week which is nice. I prefer no drama.
Peaches finished her medicine for vent gleet yesterday and I do see a big improvement in her. Unfortunately, her bottom feathers were so badly soiled that I had to trim quite a few away. So I'm eager for her to molt and go back to having a nice fluffy bottom again. I'll spare you the photos as her bottom is not very attractive right now.
|The flowers are all blooming in the garden. The roses are performing well. And my Hens and Chicks are dividing nicely.
|Beautiful Bella just continues to get prettier and prettier. Penny is the black hen in front of her.
|The hens love this ceramic bowl of water on the patio. I suspect because I fill it with cold water each time I let them out.
They are getting big and I'm ready to let them all be one big family. It will make it easier on me to get in there and tidy up the run each day if I don't have to work my way around their fencing.
I'm really happy with this batch of chicks. They are so curious and fun to interact with. Penny, my Black Cochin is a little more shy and timid than I was prepared for. Not sure if that's just a Cochin thing or if something has happened to her to make her a bit skittish. But she sure is sweet and hopefully she'll come around.
