    If you stay there -- yep, you are forced to adjust to it. After 65 yrs in this area, I kinda adapted. :lol:

    :idunno WORKS is the key!! Looks can be 2nd, especially if temporary until they can be sold off. :old


    For whatever reason, the email notices of postings has stopped. :idunno So I wondered where all the coffee crew was :caf turns out, I was the one missing the call ! But, I have had coffee...mostly each day... did have hot tea with wonderful goat milk a couple times. Nice change -- and I love hot tea! Have had a couple days off and spent much outside completing some tasks. Actually it was "in & out" due to heat!!! But, stayed hydrated and accomplished a few things. Nothing to write home about, needed doing just the same.

    Another hot day. 86 now and expected mid to upper 90s. Same yesterday...upper 90s. No real rain, just an occasional afternoon hit from humidity levels. It's gonna have to rain soon. Could use the ground moisture replenished and the cool down it brings. With mid 70 nights, its not even comfy for the animals. All have shade during day -- and using it! Water dumping is a chore but, must do and that's ok. Chicks have just stopped laying pretty much. They have cool shade but chickens do better with cold than heat. Wings out & panting....no eggs. :D =D Come to think of it, I have my wings out and panting, too. I understand.

    Stay cool. Stay hydrated. Stay safe. Have a good day. :frow

    I was wondering why you weren't posting lol. the chickens and drakes are done however now I need to catch a duck she has some white gunk on her eye most likely between the ten extra rooster and five extra drakes they did a number on my girls. they are now in a pen where the only escape will be going to the freezer. I do need to set up some sort of shade for them but that's all they get. they are adjusting to each other and no girls, the girls seem happier already. some got out of chicken yard and are walking around the main yard that's OK for now tomorrow they won't get out. they were raiding my garden so that's now over yay. I have two rooster in with the hens, a Drake and three ducks that haven't shown their gender yet. everyone seem calmer. I plan to throw up a temp pen for my extra buck soon and I will have to do another for the girls. oh well. hoping someone coming to get them this weekend. I really could use the gone. I wouldn't mind keeping but the current feed bill is 300 from my 150 so it's doubled because the field isn't ready yet. that will help when we get that done. anyways Ya'll have a good day I am going to put the year old down for nap, get a shower and start prepping for lunch.

    :lol: YEARS ago...switched from crib to playpen!:cool:

    HOT out there!! Water checks & refills done. Collected a few eggs -- hurray! a few got back with the program. Then did the "Pied Piper" routine with 22 goats to some fields the 9 mini mares can't possibly eat down. Had to sneak away after they all settled on eating the large amounts of vines/young tree limbs out there...so they didn't follow me back. Huge temp difference in the shade. I'll make them stay out there a few hours, then they will be waiting at the top gate to get back to their "own" barn. Creatures of habit! And that little jaunt gave me about a 1/2 mile walk :D =D Who needs a gym??

    Ahhh...I found my hammer that I had "left somewhere" 3 days ago! Could NOT remember where, or even what I had it for but, there it was hanging on a fence, by the gate I had climbed.:lol: Whatever! At least I remembered that I had had one!!!! :gig

    Inside chores abound.

    I think the heat has a lot to do with it...I haven't been hungry much either. Usually I eat dinner around 4-5 but since it's been so hot I've been eating much later...just blaming summer :hu

    We don't need big meals all day. Yep, heat will affect eating. Just DRINK plenty of water. You know, it is suggested that heavier morning meals, much lighter night time meals are a better allocation of energy for your body.

    I never heard that but that's generally my favorite meal to began with. I can't wait for my girls to lay more eggs I normally eat three eggs but lately I have cut back to one or two depending on how many I have.
