Chickens were quiet this morning. That’s never a good sign. Temps peaked over 110 yesterday. When I got this batch of chickens I was concerned about the Australorps, but the person selling them said that they do really well. I originally bought five. One ended up being a rooster so I was down to four. After this morning I’m down to three. I won’t get this breed again. Leghorns seem fine. It’s not abnormal to lose a bird or two during the summer but this seems early.
That wasn’t the only loss yesterday, another sweet potato is gone.
