It was a beautiful day today…the calm before the storm? We are expecting a hurricane next week, which could merge with another storm coming from the west. They are calling it Frankinstorm since it will arrive close to Halloween. But it is days away yet and they really don’t know what it is going to do. And today was warm and sunny. So I was out raking.
I noticed my girls were very noisy so I went up to check on them. Despite the warm weather,they were in the coop and fairly agitated. For no apparent reason. They didn’t seem to know what to do with themselves..
It is possible that something scared them. It is possible that they were just exploring the coop. But I couldn’t help but wonder if they might be getting ready to lay. They will be 23 weeks on Monday and the books say 20-25 weeks. Hmmm. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Perhaps some of you chicken experts out there have a notion. I will be optimistic and assume that is what it is. Stay tuned. There may be exciting news soon!
