Tonight, I had to catch them all again, wonder how long it will take them to realise the chicken house is their home ? I put the red heat lamps there so that they can follow the light, but only 2 managed to get themselves to bed tonight.
Hopefully tomorrow I can get to cleaning out the garage. Will be great to not have the fine chicken dust covering everything. Only problem is that the 7 or so chickens that were laying their eggs in various places in the garage, including an unused kitty litter box, now have to find somewhere else to hide their eggs from me, but at least I can keep the dog feeder full.
I'm just irritated, made an appointment at the Apple store when I retrieved the computer, but they were packed as usual, and the guy only got to me 10 minutes into my appointment time, so I just took the computer and came home. Plug it in, attach the back-up to it to re-load all my stuff, only to find iTunes is no longer on the computer, so I cannot upgrade to Mountain Lion to get the Cloud, nor can I load the latest iTunes as I need the previous one, which is seemingly no longer there.
Last year this time we had eggs galore, so landed up donating lots of dozens of eggs to charity. Now, we have customers waiting for the girls to lay, and I actually go to the chicken house and lift the girls up to take eggs for waiting customers ! Hopefully we have at least 35 girls in the new chicks to become future egg layers, as a dozen or so eggs from 50 chickens is not good going. But then, I'm don't put them under artificial lights, nor pump up their protein intake, o this i.
