It’s Sunday night and I promised a chick update, didn’t I? Chicklet seems to be very healthy and extremely active, moving around the pen with Mom and diving underneath her lap whenever cover is needed. Chicklet isn’t as big as a quarter and doesn’t weigh as much so I’m hoping C. grows fast. C. means Chicklet. Yes, my free chick from the hatchery was of course a rooster chick and yes, he is all grown up. Here is Daddio today.
Thanks to these readers who sent pictures of their 1600 jelly roll quilts.
Every now and then we see signs of a predator at our bird feeder and since we don’t want them any where near the barn and the chickens, we use a live animal trap. We got our 2nd opossum in two days – it seems they like sunflower seeds. The critter was relocated, not killed, and we will set the trap again tonite.
