What a cute and good momma you have there.

they all followed mama out, no problem this morning though a few of them didn't even try to walk down the ramp. They flew down instead lol. They found all the food dishes I put out and their waterer. I'm very proud of my little fluffy butts

As many of you do at night, I also take a walk around at night. Only it is after midnight for me....well after all these year's I finally came face to face with a predator, and like a baby I ran the other way. It was even cute and cuddly, just very stinky..... I should of known something was up when the cat's did not follow me for my walk.
Glad you didn't get sprayed! The cats are smart critters, I would listen to them lol
Had a bad start to my day. Woke up and got my son off to school and then got to my morning rounds with the crew. Went into the basement and had a "flood". We are trying to do some aquaponics in the basement with a tank of koi and goldfish and another tank with talapia (both have some minnows) My hubby's thingamajig he made started to over flow and got the floor soaked. There was even a puddle big enough for my cat to drink from. She loves nasty fish water lol. Made a fire since it was cold and hopefully it dries up the floor nice. The woodstove is in the same room.
Go out to the next round of critters, the ducks, chickens and my 2 remaining guineas. The hose was frozen solid. Lucky for me I had a 5 gallon water container half filled with water. I was able to refill the waterers that needed water.
Finished up taking care of everyone and came in for some hot tea and my last 2 pumpkin eggo waffles. Put them in the toaster and the dogs distracted me and I forgot about the waffles (being sick I am not thinking clearly as normal) Smelt something burning and seen my waffles were charcoal. This toaster I got over the summer and it refuses to pop up even when set on the lowest setting.
I just went to check on everyone and give everyone some fresh clean water while the hose was unfrozen. I refilled the water container up because it is supposed to be very cold again ( we are supposed to get an inch of snow tonight). I was very surprised and happy to find 8 eggs today! With the shorter days and molting going on that was a huge number of eggs for me!
