I am wondering why we were not called yet. I guess we will be called in the morning. I feel for the people that don't know that their loved ones are okay.
Please take this the right way, but she had an antique stool with her. It was from the early 1800's. I hated bringing it in there. It is just an object though. I will go through her remaining clothes here. Will the insurance cover the cost of new clothes? And where can I find clothing for a 4'8" woman that wears a size 8-10 pants?
Glad everyone made it out ok. I don't know about the insurance to be honest, I know what renters and homeowners cover, but not liability(? I think that's what businesses have). Try anywhere that sells petites, and even then you'll most likely need to hem. I'm 5'1" and plus size, so I need to hem everything except shorts and pedal pushers/clam diggers (whatever the knee length Capri's are). The other option it to buy the Capri's that are mid/lower calf length on "normal" women, I've honestly done that before.
Come to think of it, she does wear Capri's most of the time. Good thought. I had forgotten.
I have 2 problems. I have 4 Leghorns and 3 white Rocks. I was trying to get the Leghorns into the layer pen, and the broody EE into the chick pen so she can sit.
I grabbed the 2 with huge combs. They are definitely Leghorns. I went back, and I swear I cannot decide who the other 2 Leghorns are. Not by comb or tail. My flashlight kept going out, the thunder is rolling, and the lightening is flashing. The dog is scared. The chickens are upset. I finally grabbed 2, and prayed.
First problem to solve. What am I missing/what should I look for tomorrow to tell them apart? The Leghorns are ready to lay, the White Rocks are only 12 weeks.
Second, I saw something shiny while I was fumbling around in the chick pen. I thought it was a broken egg. Thinking again, I doubt the Leghorns have begun quite yet. If I see in the morning it is Cocci, are the adults now in trouble?
