    Tonight I go out to feed and notice that one of the roost bars is a little bowed. It has a crack, but not a huge, so I am hoping it will last til tomorrow. Since it was getting dark as soon as they ate they head for the roost. 3 of the big girls are up on it and it's bowing more. It'll probably dump them off tonight... hope no one gets hurt. Until hubby gets home this weekend to fix it, they'll have to make do with the roosts that are left. But honestly, I knew my girls were a "little large", but really...

    Maybe it's time for Jenny Craig for chickens. And they are not full grown...

    Yep, fat's the word. I'm thinking I might be able to pass them off as turkeys this Thanksgiving...

    Tomorrow, if the roost is still up, I will take pics of the girls on it. I didn't have the camera today. (Chickens are on my father-in-law's property now...)
