I feel like I am loosing IT! You will understand when I tell you what happened tonight when I got home. It was a little bit warmer then it was yesterday, which I was very thankful. It was blowing so much yesterday and so cold I didn't go to check on the Banties. I just let my sweet man take care of them for me, he doesn't mind helping me when it is so nasty outside!
Anyway tonight I went down to the Milk Barn after all the "Girlies and Roosters" came in for the evening. I started counting and the chicks and roosters on the ledge............ looked so cute so I thought I would take a pic for you! Certain ones like to roost there every night. Some are turned backwards. They like to cuddle. Sometimes they will pile on top of each other to stay warm. Chickens are so fun to have and watch.
After I counted them I saw the Black Cochin Bantam sitting on the barrel I have in there to keep the food protected. Then I saw the Mottled Rooster who was not to happy with the two kittens that had cuddled up in the nester box. They live in there during the night and stay toasty warm!
Then I looked over and there was two Mottled Cochin Girlie Hens sitting .........WHAT?????????? The one on the right was MISS MILLY! I am not sure who was killed other then it must have been one of the Cuckoo Maran Hens. All I know was that evening when I found the hen all hurt, I was really upset. Anyway Miss Milly is still alive and well. Like I said, "Loosing IT!!!!
The other sweet thing that happened today was the family who had the dogs that killed the hens? They brought over two huge bags of cracked corn! Now was that sweet or what? Talk about a blessing! I am happy!!!!!!!!!
One more day of baking in the bakery! Can't wait! I have a full weekend ahead. A family we know, who also follows my blog are coming to the farm. We have a surprise for them. Can't wait!!!!!! I will journal about it this weekend!
