    The weather has been amazing (but not in a good way!) for about week now, but especially the past few days. I have yet another photo of the waterfall, and also a manhole cover burst on the main street of the village due to the pressure of so much water, so there was a mini waterfall in the street too!

    Ahahaha Tilly learnt to peck the CD using clicker training!!

    It took her about 20 minutes to realise exactly what I wanted of her (before that she just moved her head near it) but I think the reason it too so long was because she wasn't in a distraction free environment...I just did it in the coop with the door open, so she was free to come and go as she pleased.



    I'm posting this in the other thread about it too because I am sooo proud of her!!

    It was sooo foggy this morning, which made for an AWESOME dog walk! We took Kasp up to the moor as we wanted to give him a big special work, and it was so creepy up there. Then as we walked further up we broke through the fog, and suddenly it was clear as day and boiling hot! :smile:

    The sun's pretty much burnt through now and everywhere is almost clear.

    I just found some long lost and forgotten filmage of the girls, Domino and most importantly my Milly hen. Made me cry like a baby. It's from sometime in 2009, I'm uploading it as we speak...she was the most special thing in the world, there will never be another hen like her...

    The bond we had was amazing; I've never really seen footage of us chuntering and interacting with each other before...so it's lovely to watch. I'm so glad I found this.

    I saw my girls today!! :woohoo:

    Woke them up and everything haha, they seem to be getting to bed earlier...'spose they are 9 this year! Ah, it was lovely to see them...I let them out for a bit without mum or dad noticing, w00t! Lyle checked the house and found 8 eggs! My dad had missed them because they were on the house floor and not the nest box hahaha! So I got some to bring home with me, oh yeah, first chuck eggs in 6 years!! :bigsmile:

    Yes, the girls have been sleeping on the floor since the cam came back on.
    Wonder if they are becoming shy old ladies and don't like to be spied upon in their boudoir?

    Tilly doesn't like jumping to or from heights, so she has refused to use the perches for quite some time now...Penny lays her eggs with Tilly because Tilly's boss and it's a communal activity...Penny will still sleep on the perches, which means I always worry about Tilly getting poo'ed on! :tooth:

    Why not remove the perches or make them really low, and make the nest box lower too? Would that traumatise Penny?

    I think she'd cope, but they're all fixed into place. The perches aren't removable so it would involve sawing through them and might mean the coop wasn't use-able for other chickens / pets. My dad did think about building steps / a bridge for Tilly to the nest box, he tried a temporary one made of bricks but she didn't use it.

    Would a false floor be more suitable? Might mean extending outside steps in some way, at top or bottom, depending on how they are structured - can't tell on the cam.

    I think that would be easier. The ladder is removable, so we could easily make it a bit steeper and attach it to the 'new' floor...so long as it wasn't so steep the girls' couldn't climb it! :tooth:

    Might have to make the doorway bigger actually, depending on hot it worked, otherwise Tilly-fat-bottom wouldn't fit in XD

    It's dawn and the girls have just come down into the pen to see about finding some breakfast. It's not full daylight yet, I can still see lights on in the town. The little birds are singing..it sounds wonderful.

    Did you all see the "Super Moon" last night?
    It was closer to earth than usual and was lovely - but isn't it always?

    (Sorry - off topic. I just noticed the time on Lynn's post, though there is a 6 hour difference 'tween us.)

    Ah yes! I noticed that last night, didn't realise it was special just thought it was a nice one! I love the moon :smile:

    We went out for jog / run with the bike and the moon lit all the viaduct.

    I was going to watch the Moon, but the clouds rolled in and I couldn't see anything at all. *sigh* I just love soggy Washington.

    I put Meow Meow out at 5am on the morning and couldn't see the moon (despite it being a huge bloomin' thing, some 30+% bigger than usual!) and looked again last night but too much cloud.

    I can see the hencam for the first time in ages! Can't see it on the mac but have been using the laptop to do some work from home. Girls look lovely, as does your weather! We have rain yet again.

    It's 6 in the morning and the girls are up and outside already. The little birds are singing sweetly..looks like another lovely morning at hencam (well a bit foggy and drizzley down toward Bradford maybe) The Girls are looking good though.

    Hubby had a track day at Oulton Park (nr Chester I believe!) yesterday. Lovely weather in the morning but started to rain at midday with no sign of stopping so came home. Had been raining at home all day!

    Meow Meow sprayed up my wall last night so I put him out in the rain. I felt guilty and looked for him an hour later - he ran in and was so grateful he followed me everywhere and then curled up to me in bed...for about 5 minutes, then he went off to annoy Emmett!

    Can you try Feliway? I remember Ollie said it was expensive, though...

    What I really need to do is get his paper collar sorted to see if he has another owner somewhere, and if no one contacts me get him up to the vet and have his bits removed!

    We found that our cats still spray indoors at times despite being neutered a long time previously.
    My understanding is that this happens when the cat is under stress.
    We have always had two cats at a time so thought it was a problem between themselves.

    That's interesting Ollie. It may be that he gets stressed because he's around a female, or because there are other toms around even if he's neutered then. I'll have to see how it goes and if neutering doesn't work then I'll invest in feliway!

    The girls are up eating breakfast already, and a little bird is in there with them looking for food too. Looks foggy down toward Bradford today.

    I got to see the girls yesterday! :woohoo:

    I got Penny down from laying an egg haha! Then we went round the garden lifting stones so Tilly could find grubs. She found a medium sized slug and pecked a huge hole in its side so 'things' fell out...and then left it!! :shocked: It was gruesome! So I scooped it up and lobbed it to Penny who dutifully ate it :smile:

    It looks like it's going to be another pretty day at hencam. The girls are out scratching around and the little birds are singing...slightly foggy down toward Bradford.
