various animals present unique problems at various times..this is a nice way of saying certain freaking animals are driving me insane. last week the cassie chicks were pecking on one of their sisters toes. we pulled her out and let it heal and then put her back. 30 seconds later the hags are pecking at it again.
so we pulled her out and put her in with the nice chickens, helga and jerome.
someone started pecking on her head and it was a bloody mess so now cassie the chicken that everyone picks on is healing in a cage in the shop.
floyd is also causing big problems out in his chicken coop..edwina has gone to nest faking a month long headache to escape his amourous attentions. since edwina is indisposed, floyd started going after helga the chicken...she was afraid to come out of her house because floyd the maniac duck was just waiting for her. i called all of our vets..none of them will neuter him. grhhh! so now we have to alternate everyone out and floyd in, then floyd out and everyone else in til bedtime...once they are in bed, he generally leaves them alone.
brent is going to work on predator proofing one of the other outside pens so that floyd can eventually be made to live alone.
i am so not a fan of barnyard birds right now...they are a pain in the ass.
