    What are your chores

    Post  Jordyn on Wed Nov 23, 2011 10:54 pm


    I thought it would be nice to have a topic about some of our daily chores. So here are mine.

    1.Make Bed
    2.Get dresses
    3.Brush hair, put in covering, brush teeth
    4.Feed pets (my cats,dog,& bunny)
    5.Do school

    I would like some replies!

    There are some chores which I don't think of as chores anymore because they're just so automatic, like making my bed. There are also some things which I do every day like chores and I guess some people might think they're chores but I don't, like music practice.

    Anyway, things I do during the day:

    - wake up.
    - make my bed.
    - get dressed, brush hair and put in bun, put on covering.
    - make & eat breakfast.
    - feed and water quails.
    - organise schoolwork for the day. What contact lessons do I have? What work needs to be done?
    - phone in to lessons where neccessary and complete schoolwork in order of how soon it's due.
    - make and eat lunch. Sometimes I prepare lunch for my mother and I; sometimes she does it.
    - continue no. 7.
    - practice music. Piano and violin. (I've just started violin. It's fun!)
    - prepare dinner. I used to do this only once a week or once a fortnight but now I'm doing it two or three times a week.
    - feed chickens. Collect eggs.
    - clear and set table for dinner.
    - put dishes in dish-washer. Because I set the table, I don't have to wash the non-dishwasher things.
    - wash myself.
    - make sure my schoolroom, bedroom, and the piano area, are tidy.

    On Saturdays, I also:
    - clean the quail pen.
    - hang out the washing.
    - vacuum my bedroom and schoolroom.

    I think this is just about everything. I think some things, like getting dressed, making and eating breakfast and lunch, organising and doing schoolwork, and practicing piano and violin, don't really count as chores. The chores, to me, are things like filling and emptying the dishwasher, hanging out the washing, vacuuming, and cleaning the quail pen. At least the quails are fairly tidy though. My sister has to clean out her rabbits' pens, and that's rancid! It's disgusting... honestly I think the bottom of a rabbit pen and the septic tank are about the same! Do you have to clean out the bunny pen?

    Yes, I saved up my pocket money for the quail, so they're my own. I'm trying to convince them to breed: quail chicks sell for a lot more than chicken chicks. It's not working! I've had them for several months now and so far they have only laid one egg. I'm beginning to think there's something wrong with the female - quail are meant to lay an egg every day, like chickens.

    I can ask my uncle about the quail if you want. He is an expert on those type of things.

    How old are your quail? I could be the temature, or it could be that she is not ready yet. He said that she should get twelve hours of light sunny and clean food and water. She has to be atleast 8 mon. before she is ready to lay. If she still has her downy feathers, then you shouldn't be seeing eggs for a while. If it is cold, you should expect less eggs. He said this is all he knows about that and he hopes is helps! He only has male quail, so he isn't trying to breed.

    It's been pretty warm for a couple of months now, and she didn't have any down when I bought her.

    However, I was cleaning out the cage about a month ago and came across no less than 23 eggs buried in the straw. She's been continuing to lay regularly but refusing to sit on them. Most have gone off now. But my father was planning to buy an incubator and he has been moving ahead more swiftly with perchasing one now so that I can put the quail eggs in it.

    Can you please as your uncle two things:

    1) How do you get a quail to sit on her eggs when she doesn't want to?, and
    2) Do you incubate quail eggs differently to chicken eggs?

    thanks,
    from Rachel.
