Yesterday was another wet day. Although the run is covered there are parts where it gets wet. The rain comes in at the edges through the sides and the bottom of the run. The rain also drips in parts and it always gets wet where the metal table is.
All the girls were dry though, apart from Apricot. Apricot was really wet and had really muddy feet. She likes to spend time in the wet parts of the run.
It is always Apricot that is the only one to get wet. The other girls quickly move across any wet parts of the run but Apricot spends time scratching and pecking in the wet parts.
I worry about her getting wet because seramas originate from a hot country (Malaysia) and I have read that they can be susceptible to colds and need some protection from the elements. We have managed to keep ninety percent of our run dry and have put in two shelters but there isn’t much we can do if Apricot stands in the wet parts. She must be standing underneath the drips.
I considered bringing her in and drying her with a hair dryer but I thought that it would be a waste of time if I put her back in the run and she stands under the drips again. I decided as it’s not cold I would leave her.
Luckily by bedtime she was dry. I think I will probably be worrying about her in the winter. Some of these little girls just have no sense at all.
