Between rain showers today we had a chance to let the goats and chickens out to free range. Michael spent his time keeping the goats entertained and off the pool deck. I spent mine with a video camera, behind the hen house, filming Judge Judy laying an egg. I captured 59 minutes of video before she finally got the job done. During that 59 minutes I had goats chewing my pants, eating the camera strap and climbing all over me. Oprah, one of our barred rocks, came in causing trouble at the last minute. It seems she had to lay an egg too, but wanted to use nesting box already occupied by Judy. They worked it out in a very ladylike fashion.
This video represents the sum total of what I accomplished today. Enjoy!
p.s. The white eggs are wood. It’s a trick designed to teach pullets where to lay. Oh, and Judy is a Transylvania Naked Neck hen. She is supposed to look look like that.
