Memnoch’s swoop & swirl looked better today. Or, it looked red again & that to me looked better. I don’t really know what to look for. Last year, when I ran into too much humidity in the coop & Odysseus had a couple points get frostbite, they fell off relatively fast. Also, his comb is very different than Mem’s (Ody has the rose comb & Mem ended up with a split big comb), so I don’t really know if the colour reverting back to red actually means things are getting better. I wasn’t able to contact Dr. Miller today, so I’ll do it tomorrow just to get more information on frostbite & peace of mind. He hasn’t slowed down a bit, so I’m taking that as a good sign. He even spent the day in the pen with everyone & Ody spent the day in the barn with Athena & Penelope.

I also got to try the harness on Sparta! She’s too small for it! It’s both hilarious & frustrating. Hilarious because she flopped onto her side & wiggled & kicked her way out the neck hole & then refused to talk to me when I carried her back to the coop. Frustrating because this is exactly like the hen aprons for her. The smallest size is still too big. I’m pretty sure the harness will fit Odysseus, so someone’s going to wear it & crack me up. Maybe she’ll fill out a little more in the next couple months before her 1st birthday, but I’m having serious doubts that she’s going to get much bigger than she is now. Which is okay because her tiny stature & spitfire attitude are what I like best about her.
