Dose Day for the Ladies

The chickens got roundworm. We let them out a lot, so who knows who they got it from.

Today we dosed them. I don't know what with. Milady works for a veterinarian who specializes in birds, and who has several dozen chickens on his property at home. We trusted whatever he gave us.

We caught them, one by one, coming out of the coop (they love coming out of the coop!). I held 'em, and held their beak open; milady squeezed the syringe in, and we let 'em go. Came back and gave 'em mealworms as a treat for being good chickens. 

But we can't eat their eggs for a month. February 20th or so, we get eggs again.
