Spring Chicken

Today’s writing prompt:

Spring chicken.

Inspired by 17 fluffy chicks chirping in my incubator 🙂

Breakfast

I’m sure most of us are well and truly chocolated-out 😦

I’ll stick to regular eggs for a while now!

Hot Water

Thankfully we have enough water in our tanks during this extended heatwave. As well as the house tanks we have several small tanks around the block filled with dam water by Rod last weekend for watering the trees and plants. The water is very warm, even first thing in the morning. I’ve been starting at daybreak to bucket as much as I can before the sun gets too hot and doing more in the evenings until dark but the trees all look good. Poor Rod has been sweltering in his truck all week (no air-con!) so we’re going to be very tired this weekend. Hopefully, the cool change expected much later today will bring some relief although authorities are saying it will possibly increase the chance of bushfires through lightning and wind. I hope everyone is safe.

I’ve draped my chook pens with old block-out curtains to keep a little of the sun off the tin and, fortunately, no more casualties yesterday. I can’t believe a few are still valiantly laying eggs despite their discomfort. (Perhaps when I go to use them they’ll already be hard-boiled!!)

 

Natural progression :)

Little green grub munches on tomato plants . . . chooks swallow little green grub . . . eggs 🙂

 

Great stamps

Whoever decides the designs for our postage stamps must have been listening to me this year.

A Mini Red Dachshund a few months ago and now chooks 🙂

They look so much better on the envelopes than ‘Postage Paid’!!

Thank you to all the kind subscribers and contributors who have been sending stamps – it all helps and I do appreciate it 🙂

Lots of PET stories coming in for the October issue but, so far, no chook tales 😦
