I can't believe I have a broody chicken. I always wondered if a hen that has never even met a rooster would go broody, but I guess I have my answer. Either that or Miranda is sick and has chosen the favoured nest box as a comforting spot to sleep it off. What should I look for? She didn't complain much when I fished out two amazingly warm eggs yesterday, but she spent the night on the nest. She does seem to like to nap on the nest from time to time.
My Polish chicks are still insisting on roosting in the tree, so every night I am still going out and hauling them one by one from the tree and placing them on the roosts in the coop. I di as suggested and actually put a branch from that same tree to put in the coop as a roost, and there is enough light with both the pop door and the cleanout door open. Maybe I need to tie their crests into ponytails so they see better. Any other ideas? Silly chickens.
Well her Columbian sister here is having some silly ideas too. SHe can't make up her mind, won't stay on a nest at night but all snarky during the day. Personally I blame OC messing with the genetics LOL!

Dills and bread and butters done. Beets next. If the tomatoes would hurry up and ripen I could start on salsa next weekend but it’s been a bad year so far for tomatoes. Yield is low and slow. No bugs, worms or blight yet at least. Peppers have done great!

I’m cleaning the coop today and holy H E double hockey sticks the flies are driving me crazy. I have a couple of sticky fly traps strategically located where a chicken can’t get to them but those spaces are few and far between. I’ve made a few homemade fly traps just to try them out. Anybody found anything else helpful? I don’t even have much poop in there attracting them since it’s scraped out each morning.
