Falling Rain And Branches

This morning the driveway was blocked 
in several places by fallen branches.
I didn't see them until I started walking to the gate.
The branches were bulky, but not heavy.

Most of the branches were by the front gate. 

This long branch was by the back fence. 

Rainfall this year is up to 10.08.
Hope we get some more rain tomorrow and Monday. 
Our average annual precipitation 
is somewhere over 40 inches.

It was really wet last year.
Hope more rain and snow shows up.
I don't want to face a dry summer with high fire danger.

I checked to see if the 
Buff Orpington 
was still on the roost. 

The hen was out by the shed next to the Dark Brahmas 
sunning herself. 
She has a tin of lay that she shared. 
I didn't see her eat any of it.

Later she joined the other hens on the porch 
and ate up her share of cabbage. 

There are three Buff Orpingtons in the photo. 
Curly the Cochin is the buff colored hen at the bottom. 
There are only 3 Buff Orpingtons 
so that means that one of those Buffs is the 
hen that is acting poorly.
Hope she is back to feeling ok.

No eggs.

We actually have had plenty of rain and wetness. We are supposed to get more rain tomorrow. We have around two to three inches of snow still on the ground.
