Suddenly, Krypto doesn't seem as satisfied with his new food. He's been eating it for 5 1/2 months. My plan is to get 2 kinds of food next time...the new food, and the old food, which appears to be in stock again. My thinking is that, if I mix the foods, he will feel more satisfied, yet enjoy the new food flavor, and I will be happy with the mix. Here's hoping.
Both dogs seem to be feeling cold at night, like we have been. Krypto will get in bed, but Hira, who sleeps on it all day long, leaves once humans go to bed she sleeps on her mat. I like her mat for summer, but she needs something warmer when the weather gets cold for the season. I'm thinking some kind of deep, stuffed, warm pillowy bed.
Uhura, who was always 100% black, not only has little white hairs when you look closely now, but small clumps of white fur. You still need to get close to see it, but it's there.
She's been fluffing her fur up the last couple of nights, and went between some covers.
Henry doesn't seem to notice as much.
And, Dandy has slimmed down. We worked hard on it, and he looks good now, though he's still comfortably plump, which is important once it gets cold. He actually looks plumper than he really is because of his longer, fluffier fur.
And the hens are slowing on their egg laying. One reason is that they are in their final molt of this year, the other is the shorter days.
The little girls have been laying their much smaller eggs since they started a couple of weeks ago. The other day Dh cooked the small eggs, and they were so cute in the pan, lol!
They will get larger, until full sized, in time. I'm just still really impressed that they began laying already. I've always understood that leghorns of all varieties are excellent layers, but never had one as they are a bit of a handful, unlike my heavy, mellow layers. Dh had white leghorns as a child, (the ones that kindergarten classes watched hatch. Then, the teachers offered for children to take them home if they wanted to. I didn't know that kids took them home until Dh.) and said that, while he loved them dearly, they were a bit of a handful, too.
From what I'd read, I'd expected their eggs to be pure white, but these are slightly colored. Barely, but they aren't bright white. However, you can still tell them from my other eggs, and I still think that, come Easter, they will be able to be dyed.
Well, I think that's all the critter news!
