Then there's the son unit. I'm thinking we're going to have to add a medication on top of his new one because he doesn't SLEEP on this new one. Like at all. He's been staying up till 2 am and he's up a few times at night and then up for the day by eight. It's taking a serious toll on me, so I need to talk to his doctor about what I can do about it. I've tried melatonin, again, and it did exactly what it did the last fifteen times I've tried it. Nothing that I can see. So, yeah, other medications might be necessary. Because he's not sleeping his mood is good...when he GETS sleep. When he doesn't the lack of sleep on this new med definitely effects him now (not a bad thing, honestly as it shows it's working) and there's been a couple of days, like today, where I'm counting down the seconds till he's asleep again. Definitely not a lot of fun for anyone involved.
The garden is finally producing lettuce to the point I can harvest a little bit here and there and I was able to thin the turnips a couple of times this week and add those to the salad fodder. So far the amounts I have gotten just from the young turnip greens and the lettuce have paid for the seeds I purchased to grow them, so yay for a return on your investment :).
My final broody hen FINALLY just went back to normal behaviors the last couple of days (such a huge relief) and so we should, SHOULD, be back to three eggs a day about here soon. So more egg are going to get used :).
