As one of the lucky recipients of your baby chicks, I am absolutely horrified at what you returned to! I'm glad that the neighbor is getting rid of the dog, but as you said, that will just make his child sad.
Barbara and Ernie are enjoying their life with the herd sire, although he (and the head farm cat) seem to be scared of them. Because it has been so cold recently, we take them inside at night and keep them near the baby chickens, but they let us know when they wake up with their whistling. Then it is back to their pen, inside of the male's pasture.
I'll attach a photo so you can see them.
Well, I couldn't get it to work, so maybe I'll make it my photo for the forums.
