Remember when I told you that I had Maggie up on the stand and she fell/jumped off? On Sunday I really cut back on the feed for her so this morning she was really wanting her grain. She watched me put the grain in her food bowl on the stand and she just cried and cried and tried to get back into the stall with JuJu who was eating her grain.
I then took her and led her to the stand so that she could jump up on it and she started to tremble and struggle against me. I ended up putting her bowl on the lower part of the stand and sat next to her while she ate there. I will try that for a few days till I try again to get her up on it. She is getting very big with child.
I will need to also get JuJu used to getting back up on the stand. She's bigger then Maggie! I am wondering just how am I ever going to milk them. This is their first time to have babies and they have never been "touched" in that way! JuJu will let me put my hand on her udder but Maggie gets very offended when I try that with her.
On the chicken front. Still no eggs. Can you end up with chickens that just don't lay eggs? My friend Kellie and I did a little Cochin chicken research and they lay about two eggs a week. I wonder if they might be laying them outside?
