Hi Amber Lynn
Mina here. Haven't heard from ya in a while and thought I'd stretch my wings a minute to drop off a vote and bring you up.
The total eggs I laid was 3. I'm sitting on 2 of them. even after mom gave me my egg back I decided she could have that one. I'm sitting on my two and very happily doing so. I do miss not coming down with everyone and mom will bring me down a couple of times a day but I only sit for about 5 mins. then want back up to the eggs. Yeah, still nippy and I make sure mom lets me check EVERYTHING out that she pulls from my cage. So far it's just shells and she says that is all she would pull, but just to make sure I check it all. Then right away I sit on the eggs. Mom says I am a very good mommy. I take that with a big smile.
I never had a special "toy" I've left that up to Kiwi. hehehe Mom doesn't think either Kiwi or Dandy were with me....and I'll never tell her. So we just make sweet noises over my eggs. hehehe
I've ended up with a bacterial infection and here's what we think happened. Mom noticed me climbing down all the time (even downstairs) and running over to floor of all the cages and all over the floor eating poo. She called the vet and he told her that many hens, especially rings, will do that not because we lack anything, but because we don't want predators knowing there is a nest anywhere about. So we clean up any mess we find. We think I cleaned up something brought in. I'm not REALLY sick, just this little problem. So I have some good bacteria he's giving me which isn't to bad and I have to take my other meds. Then I have to go back for a check up. At least I'm well looked after. Mom hopes I'll be over my eggs by that time. and if not she's going to take them....maybe. hehehe
Well that is about all that is new with me. Sly's a pill attacking dad at every opportunity, but what else is new? Kiwi is in breeding mode and calling out to each and every quaker in the state of Nv. Dandy is staring at himself in any mirror he can locate and the finches are starting to show activity. More later.
