Somebody order a bucket of chicken?

He’s fine. He wanted a dust bath and Uncle B had planted up the raised beds.

He. Yes. I tried the egg experiment last year, too, with tragic results. My flock already includes an excess of adult roosters, because I’m a slop-bag.

All the chicks you want to paint 🙂 Are you the stand-in for Mom? Sweet to be chased by a herd of chicks, crying peep peep peep for your finest grain. (well, your finest grain has been distilled, but you know what I mean).

The babies are too little to roam freely yet. They’ve just started to go out in the garden in a temporary pen. Which is a full week earlier than everyone says they should. I think I gave them too many vitamins 🙁

Not today, though — it’s set to rain all day. I’m a bit worried — they’ve gotten way too big for the cardboard box in my workroom.

Re: Dust Bath. Perhaps you could buy a child’s sand box for the chickens, one with a rain cover (which also prevents the cats using it for a latrine). Happy chickens, happy life.

You didn’t write a lot about the chickens last summer. I guess all of your original four are gone now. But you acquired two new girls (before the first four were gone) whose names I cannot remember (this is like one of those bus stop riddles). If you named the birds from last year, I can’t remember what the names are. You have ten more. You have a lot of chickens now. Peep.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
