The nights really are drawing in now, the chickens are tucking themselves up for bed earlier and earlier each day. Yesterday it was 7.10pm, at the start of the week it was 7.30pm. That's a whole 20 minutes less of a day for them.
# I must admit I quite like the extra time this gives us in the evening, without a break from what we are doing to put everyone to bed. They struggled to come out at all this morning, it was damp and a heavy mist lay over all the fields. If I was them I think I would have turned over and gone back to sleep.
# As it is they are all up and pecking around now, although one of them is in for a shock. Cappachino is very mucky around the rear end (to put it politely) and is going to be dunked in some mildly soapy water to clean her up. Last time I did that (to Latte) she ran back to the flock with a most indignant look on her face as if to say "guess what SHE just did to me?"No wonder they get mucky...........
I'll wait for the sun to show it's face and then go and do Cappys little spa treatment.

Have a good day.
