The chickens are doing well after my week away from them. Who knows if they missed me. They’ll take food from any outstretched hand, after all.
Gracie, the one who is molting, seems to be on the upward swing.
She still looks mangy but not more so. I think she’s bottomed out and will continue to look better and better as time goes by.
On the average the hens are laying a bit less. Gracie isn’t laying at all because of the molt, the other two have slacked off. But I’m still getting eggs, just not as many.
