Tonight, Nathaniel had to work late, and Lydia did not want to try again, so we'll have to work on it this weekend, maybe. Gyunay loved watching!
Oh, and what do I do on my birthday?
Chicken Spa. This hen, Brave, has been acting weird. I think she may be egg-bound, which is not good. I looked online for treatments. The creepy ones involve Vaseline and rubber gloves, but they are also not really advised, so I was happy to ignore those. The only thing that seemed a possibility was to soak her in a very warm "bath".
She did not enjoy it, so I had to hold her in the water. I don't know that it did anything other than make her wet and unhappy. Luckily, she's a really sweet, docile hen, so it wasn't a big deal for me. I hope she unclogs soon, though, because if she does have an egg stuck and doesn't pass it, she will die.
