Finally it looks like the oppressive heat has left. After almost two months of above 94 degrees every day we are down in the upper 80s. I am now able to start walking again. Last night the breeze and low humidity with a temp of 80 at 7:3o made it a very pleasant walk. The 10 day forecast has us down in the 60s at night and mid to high 80s during the day. My chickens are much happier campers. All but two of my hens have started molting and stopped laying eggs. The young Buffs should start laying any day and of course Betty is still broody. This afternoon hoping to visit a small farm down the rode for fresh eggs. This will be the first time since February that I have had to purchase eggs.
