here’s the timeline just so we’re clear:

chicken whisperer visits monday morning and suggests more protein for the girls to increase egg production.

i start them on yogurt monday afternoon.

tuesday afternoon we get 2 eggs, thus doubling our egg production within 24 hours.

on a different note, last night madge¬†“pasted over” and i¬†had to clean her off-¬†a job she and i¬†both hated, and i¬†hope i¬†never have to do again. i¬†thought this only happened to chicks, but this actually killed daisy a few weeks ago (sorry i¬†forgot to tell you). any thoughts on why this keeps happening? i’ll¬†ask our new chicken guru, but i’m wondering if any of you have experienced this with your flocks and you have some insights…

on the happy side, madge¬†is up and around today, happy and robust as ever. she is none the worse for the experience, whereas i¬†am severely¬†traumatized. she is clearly a farm animal and i¬†am clearly not a farmer. but, it’s a learning process, and hopefully i’ll toughen up.

today i’m¬†cleaning out cabinets and doing a bunch of laundry-¬†both things i¬†am good at-¬†reaffirming my belief in myself that i¬†am good enough, i am gritty enough, and gosh darn it, people like meūüôā
