Thank you Fizzybelle .. yep, I know there are lots of good chicken people out there and I have been lucky enough to meet the cream of the crop right here!
satay and MyHaven I can not thank you both enough for your more than generous offers.
As I type, KiKi is saying goodnight to the world .. sitting on the roost, honking away and I am OK with that.
Once again she has yet another stay of execution … bad day, demanding users, in your face cat and constant honking does not a good outlook make.
After work, I went outside, sat with the girls and told KiKi what a very bad chicken she was and when she looked at me .. not a chance in the proverbial that I could hand her over, even to friends who I know would take such very good care of her.
I really do just have to learn to live with it [if the music does not work that is] … I could always try music headphones of my own but I do find them distracting when trying to work.
Another option could be to shut the bedroom door and the front door to reduce the volume. Not an option in summer when I need all the air flow I can get, but winter is coming.
Either way, I am going to try and make this work. I did suggest to hubby I retire and become a full time chicken carer
Fizzybelle wow, you can see the rooster in that picture of ‘Iris’ and Esme and it is an adorable picture. Esme is such a little cutie! Congrats on breaking Agnes … hopefully you will not have to deal with broodiness again until Spring.
satay ouch, I am sorry to read about you shoulder .. not good
Thanks sjturner79 I confess to really not paying much attention to their combs unless they are showing signs indicative of illness or injury. I have, however, noticed that Dusty’s comb does seem to ‘free float’ over the back of her head more than the others’ combs which remain ‘attached’ to their head.
