Minchi: Have been saying prayers for Colorado for weeks. We had those kind of fires last year here in Texas and the hay I bought all winter came from California because if the drought didn't burn up the Texas hay, the wildfires did. We couldn't beg borrow or steal hay out here.
Hope you're in a safe place and your chickies are all OK.
You guys were right, sort of. My neighbor with the broken hip is not to come back home at all. His berth is already secured in a nursing home close to his kids in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. His place will be put up for sale. His cats have already joined my barn cats. Will continue to take care of his chickens (25 mutts) until the kids decide what to do...NO FLEAS, THO! Thanks for all your help on that one.
Oh! and one of my Sex Links brought 13 baby chicks to the coop this afternoon! They are so cute! The one on top of the hay has hatched, I can hear them, but she hasn't come down yet.
