Yesterday the wind blew straight out of the NorthEast. Which in New Zealand would be a hot wind but here in Illinois it is mean cold wind. Not a good wind for calving. Hopefully it will not be back today. The chooks stayed fluffed up for warmth.
And Marcel stayed close to his light. The proximity of Marcel to his nightlight is a bit of an optical illusion. He is actually standing on a straw bale by the wall with his light far away over a well in the loose straw in the center (where he sleeps) . All set up for a calf in case he is born in the cold. Not one draft can get in there. I don’t mind waiting Daisy. A warmer day is fine with me. My tiny flock of guinea fowl were looking old yesterday. They are over 5 years old now and this winter has been hard on them too.
The night passed uneventfully which is good. Now we will see what happens today. She has to be almost ready.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
