Apples are done, peaches and plums are green still. We are getting a few very small cherry toms to snack on while watering. We had some thunder and rain here today. I moved the big water fount in to the coop. Got the big feeder hung up and they are using it now. I took out the plastic smaller feeders.
Today I dismantled the nest of the broody hen that went next door to go for a hatch. After a month it was time. We herded her back home after she headed for the spot she was sitting again. She has showered in the rain and returned to the flock now. That's a relief.The other broody hen is still sitting on a golf ball but is in the coop.
We got the smallest egg I've ever seen today about an inch and a half long. Dark and speckled a lovely egg. One of the New Hampshire red pullets have already started to lay eggs. We gathered eight eggs today.
