I am so pleased that I can no longer hear Dandelion’s breathing and the girls are now only sneezing occasionally so I really think that they are getting back to normal, thank goodness.
Freckles has continued to perch with the flock at bedtime which is also really pleasing me. For the last three nights she has perched in the middle of the flock. I am so pleased that she has decided, herself, to do this as winter approaches.
This morning I thought I would give the girls a treat of some probiotic yogurt.
There are yogurt beaks and spots of yogurt on feathers and lots of scraping of beaks on the patio. They love the yogurt but don’t like it to be left on their beaks.
By lunch time when I checked them the yogurt had all disappeared and the girls beaks and feathers were clean again.
I picked up the feathers in the run and this was how many feathers I collected in just half a day.
Emerald is continuing to drop some long feathers as well as a few fluffy ones but the majority of the feathers are from Freckles. I think I can safely say that seramas do moult in winter.
I am so happy to have things just about back to normal in the chicken run. I hope not to have any more drama any time soon.
