Last night Santiago, our gardener came to pick up his chickens. He was so excited! This morning after breakfast, I put my work clothes on, got Noah dressed to play outside, and I got to work taking down their makeshift coop and pen. I was very happy to do it! I think my "girls" will be happier now too. No more bullying B's!
After I cleaned the B's pen out, and washed everything down, I put the old rush chair I had in the little house coop into the this pen. I wonder if they will roost on it or not. The B's did every night!
I put a second nest box in there too. Just in case they begin to lay while we are gone. The three older ones, Ham, Sammy and Chicas should be any time now. The other two, Tillie and Beatrice, are a few weeks younger. But it won't be long now that I have more eggs than I will know what to do with.
I also scrubbed and disinfected the Little Tikes Playhouse. I drug it back into the backyard and put it on foam interlocking mats.
I am going to dinner with my girlfriend Jae tonight. Our husbands play ball on Wednesday nights, and we like to get together for some friend time.
Only 3 more sleeps til we leave for Lake Heaven. Also known as Bass Lake. Let the countdown begin!!
