We've had nearly 800 ml since the long weekend.
Pens are a disgusting mucky mess again.

A happy medium of rain and sun shine would be great.

:rofl: it is usually my complaint. now i am saying what happened to our wet season? it has gone south. fantastic chook weather here but very hot and muggy. now i remember why i keep birds free range...those muddy yukky pens that happen.

because our weather has gone to you i have had one of the healthiest chook seasons ever (touch wood).

I actually can't remember the last day it didn't rain around here. We have been flooded in going on 7 days now and in the river is on the rise once again. I think everyone has forgotten that it is our wet season and it's just returning to how it used to be, there was always floods and I remember as a child growing up hearing that cyclone warning on the TV all the time. I've given up wearing footwear to the chook pen now, you just loose it in the mud and poo! :laughing

Weve had 1082mm since the long weekend, been flooded in3 times but at least this time it was only for the day so not so bad. The chook pens have become smelly mud soup again and thank goodness my boots are too tight to come off in the mire or else i would be forced to trudge through it barefoot too.
Just caught another 5 foot python eying off my 6 week old pullets- have bagged it ( in hessian ) , will take it for a drive further out the valley to release it. That is if i can get out our muddy slope of a driveway without getting bogged. :thumbs: Ahhh- the joys of too much rain :biggrin:
cheers

Us too Pacer, driest summer ever here and hot! Usually we get one to four hot days each summer but this year it has been one after the other with minimal rain to ease the dry soil. Some of the trees here are dying from a lack of the wet stuff.

i must be honest and say I WISH IT WOULD RAIN,

although i can understand frustration of continuous rain, its soooooooooooo depressing and wet.

The rain doesn't bother me, its just the muddy mess the pens end up in that worries me, with the threat of sickness looming as a consequence.

Hi
our pens look exactly the same, we let everyone out to free range that way they can at least get out of the stinking mud
cheers essie
