Ahhh. Thanks to the delta breezes, there was a dramatic drop in temperature yesterday and we all breathed a sigh of relief. For the first time in I can't remember when, I didn't come out of the barn dripping wet from the inside out. The girls waiting their turn frisked about like kids. Large flocks of turkeys drifted through the property all day; they had been staying down in the shade of the woods during the heat. I hadn't blamed the little girls for not wanting to sit in a hot box. Egg production had fallen to one, maybe three a day. Last evening I picked up eight! The bird bath in the herb garden was a riot of activity with lots of splashing and chatter going on as the wild birds came to cool off. We're all back in our comfort zone.
