Today is a bit of a sad day in the animal world at our house. If you recall, my chicken Nimbus was broody and laying on her unfertilized eggs. Last night my husband and I took her out from her nest and put her in a small wire cage outside in the chicken enclosure. Apparently the wind under her, together with having no place to make a nest, will bring her out of her broodiness. She has food, water, and fresh grass, as well as a piece of cardboard to lay on.
It is sad because she just wanted to be a mama. I feel bad for treating an aspiring mama so harshly. Putting her in the wire cage and all. I hope that within a few days she will be ready to be let out. Dundren is keeping her company, as is Bubba Grace, our new cat.
Also, my dog Rudy had a seizure today. He has them sometimes. The vet said that they will not really hurt him, although they are probably uncomfortable and scary when they happen. We chose to keep him off medication and just deal with them when they occur. It has been a long time since his last seizure. He is doing ok now, and laying in the sun.
