Can you believe we got snow April 28th to May 1st? It didn't stay but it did leave muddy roads. So many things to do, not enough time. We finally finished the chicken palace. Steve installed a water system so I don't have to lug the waterers in and out. My littles turn 2months on May 6th. They are still frightened by the big hens. I even named them, lol. Heckle and Jeckle are the 2 barred rocks, the 4 americans are Lucy, Ethel, Toni and Dawn, the 2 buffs are Samantha and Tabitha and the Silver Wyndottes are Star and Dancer, you know for Silver Stars and Silver Dancer. One, Samantha ventured out and ran out of the coop area by the bigger hens. I'm kind of obsessive about my babies. I went inside, counted 9, recouted and still only 9. Fortunately I found Samantha under the coop. She came right to me. It pays to bond with them. The silver Wyndottes and the Americans are still skittish around me. The Buffs and Barred Rocks come right up to me. Oh and did I say that Bobby Sue my older hen started laying again. The day we opened the coop for them to get outside, I told her she had better start laying or she would be soup. Lol Well enough about my chickens Wishing you all a good day and week.
