This morning the rain had finally stopped although it looked like it would start again at any second. It has rained throughout the night and all of yesterday so we were very concerned that the entire plot would be under water.
We arrived to find the flooding was significant on our side of the site. Huge areas flooded across the entire width of the plots.
Upon opening the greenhouse, we were greeted by a chorus of enthusiastic clucks. We fed the chicks and Emily while my husband commented on how big they have grown since he last saw them. We left the lid of the run open whilst we dashed down to the main coop to feed the other girls.
It was a bit of a sad sight, they all looked rather sorry for themselves. The rain hasade the floor of their coop rather muddy and they weren’t happy about it. I fed them their treats and checked on their food and water. As I was cleaning out the nest box, I found an egg. It’s very unusual for an egg to be laid by the perches and we have only ever had one egg without a shell. I cleared it out and spent several minutes trying to keep Fizz away from it. Aggravating bird!
If the rain ever ends, I plan to finish off the extension to the new coop on Rachael’s plot. Key word in that sentence is, if.
