Okay...someone needs to put a big sign on my back that says 'kick me' because I've lost it. It's about 29 degrees outside today and I couldn't bear to keep my OEGB banty pair outside in the chickNhutch & run the last few days because it's so cold. It all started when I discovered my banty roo had sores on his butt. (long story, another thread). I gave him a bath and then didn't want to put him back out incase he wasn't dry...I can't keep them in the regular coop until I'm sure he's clear. Plus I do NOT like the cold and I want to make sure I can keep an eye on him and nurse him. I've been putting oil & antibacterial cream on him and it seems to be working. Last two days he's been crowing at 7:10 am on the dot - right when I need to leave to take the kids to school. What a good boy! I can tell he's feeling better. I'm also taking care of my friends bunny for the week while she's off to visit family in NJ. Plus, we have our own animals. So, in my kitchen area there are....2 bunnies (separate cages), 2 dogs (beds included), 2 banties (separate cages so she doesn't pick his sores), and 3 chicks (9 weeks) in the brooder in the laundry room...arrrrrrgggggghhhhhh! What....was.....I.....thinking??!!!??? I'm a country girl wannabe, but this is ridiculous! I KNOW there's got to be others out there who are as dumb as I am...anyone wanna 'fess up now? I need some reassurance I'm not alone...tee hee.
