My Veteran is out mowing today but he's suggested going to Farm King (a 'day date')...woohooo. The new hens are doing ok. The Red Girls are talkative and active but they will not use the chicken door. Even if I give them an assist through the door they come right back in. If I let them go out the big door in the barn they are completely happy....weird. Of course barn doors are my dilemma this week. The garage door to the barn got kinked or something and I can't seem to fix it. This is the second time this year it's hung up. So I lowered it almost to the ground and set up barriers. Will call the repair guy tomorrow.
The Rock girls are also ok in their private pen - they liked the Nutrena grow feed so I may continue with that. There are a lot more feed choices since the last time I had birds. The Rock girls need a little more socialization I think - they are skittish unlike the Red girls who can't wait to see what you've got/what you're doing!
And we got some pullet eggs this week (and an order of egg carton, lol - wishful thinking). So all's good so far (there was a HUGE pig sized coon last night at 8:30 strolling across the front yard - Sophie went ballistic and treed the thing but Big Mama better find new digs....)
