Fun with high tech toys
We had some visitors last week, and while chatting of this and that, they mentioned the very fancy Geiger counter they bought, and that they happened to have it in their car. Naturally we all decided to try it out!
The first step was to check the reading far from the chickens (16 something-or-others), then near the chicken house (16 again), and finally, inside the egg-layer chicken house, where the reading was slightly lower (less radiation from above, one assumes) at 15 what-have-yous.
A good news sort of day, especially when combined with the faxed results of the egg testing: no radioactive ions detected! Happy chickens.
