Hello, crazy chicken people! Welcome to anyone new in the last 5 days. I hope you are being helped with your chicken math!
Is Sally back? where did she go?
2 funny stories. First, I heard the first broody fussing, and her 3 chicks were peeping. I checked her first, and saw nothing wrong. Five or ten minutes later one chick was frantic, and Baby was getting louder too. Turns out a chick had gotten stuck inside the feeder (climbing up the ramp, then falling in the top of the feeder is my guess).
Second was yesterday in the chick pen. I have one plastic nest box in there still. A small chick had managed to fly up on top of it, and was sliding down, but too scared to spread her wings and fly down. I put my hand next to her to support her, and thought she would get the nerve to fly down. While waiting, another chick flew up, and sat in my other hand.
Okay, the chicks are actually doing funny things daily. The nest box girl keeps perching on the feeder while I am carrying it, and all 3 of the smaller chicks were perching on the back of my boots (the collar thing. what the heck do you call it?) this morning.
In other news I can't walk. I somehow hurt my back yesterday, and my leg keeps giving out. IDK what I am going to do. I have to empty my old house this week before it goes up for Sheriff's sale (apparently not paying taxes is a bad thing?) in July. DH is going to do what he can. I just hope I am okay tomorrow. So frustrating (and painful!)!!
