Back in fighting form on the farm

While yesterday was a no-egg day, I think it was partially a timing issue because this morning I got two brown eggs and a white egg. I haven't gotten anything oddly colored, spotted, or missing pieces in a week. So the chicken weirdness is over for now.

Summer's eye is improving. This morning she could at least see light/dark enough to see my hand coming with the eye goop. Also, moving Summer into the baby girl field has caused a dramatic decrease in her overall skittishness. She is still fast on the bounce and gone from the barn the moment she is done eating, but she is not throwing her head or running the moment anyone else tries to shift bowls. I'm reminded of the change in Lerris two years ago when I moved him out of the adult buck yard into the adult doe yard. (For example, here is one post about his new attitude.) He settled down a lot from where he had been. He and Anna are still freaks, but not nearly so unhealthy about it.
