If you are looking for plants, this is not your week. All I have is animals and more animals….
First up – CHICKEN DOINGS
Austin got a new chicken coloration that he loves –
Here is that chick next to a stripey one, with somebody else’s head sticking out.
Austin took me to the new fenced chicken yard to see his triple-blood hybrid, but I cannot pick that bird out of the crowd – so we’ll see him another time. Meanwhile, Austin also wanted to show the size difference in his chickens that have the “Kabeer” blood.
We could not get a good photo of them in his arms. So Austin wanted me to show them from a different angle.
Big Foot and Little (no-Kabeer) Cousin.
And here is a photo of the new fencing around this chicken pen.
It is on the terraces. Austin is always trying something new. A funny challenge from fencing on terraces is that the lowest side is fairly easy to hop over. Adjustments are needed.
WORLD OF INSECTS
We have been surprised at the huge number of moths appearing on our ceiling in the lounge every night.
At first they were congregating around the tube lights – with a strong preference for the yellower ones. But then they were just spreading out across the ceiling. As we tried to figure out why, we noticed something:
What happened to the geckos?
(Could the boric acid Austin put out to kill the invasive ants have hurt our suction-cup-footed friends?)
Way back when we had to get Po’s tail amputated, we did not get her spayed because she’d had a litter of four pups followed by a litter of one, so we figured she was going through menopause. And yes, she did have a litter since that time, but I still kind of forgot. Then Po got “fat” again…
Here is the hole that she dug for her delivery room.
Here she is, moved to the old cabin, with the EIGHT survivors, from her litter of ELEVEN. Oh Lordy.
Does one of the eight look a bit “different” to you?
We got a Green Pup!
And it case you think it is a trick of the light, here it is again with a flash on.
So she isn’t the greenest pup ever, but “green puppy” is a Google-able condition – generally attributed to staining from meconium (baby poo).
I think we are going to have to take Po to the vet once these pups are weaned. Enough is enough already!
Happy week, everybody.
